Experience

I started taking this pill to help ease my period cramps and flow, as well as for contraceptive reasons. I bled so heavily on this pill and so frequently that I had to stop.. I was getting periods every two weeks and it just caused such issues for anaemia that I couldn’t continue. My periods were initially very irregular and then far too frequent for me to continue with this..
