Experience

Amazing pill, went on it for incredibly heavy and painful periods which are now non existent! Before, I would be in bed for the first two days of my period it was too painful and draining to do anything and i had fainted due to the aneamia they caused, but on lowest run I feel like I have my life back. Only downside was I was very nauseous in the first 3 days of taking this pill but that’s expected and could have been avoided if I took it at night, also I felt incredibly low in the first 3 weeks crying lots which was probably amplified by external stresses, but after my first seven day break I felt back to my normal self. No more migraines, less spots, much lighter periods and significantly less cramping, little more discharge than normal but that’s better than dryness, mood is fine now – only reason I can’t keep taking it is bc of manufacturing issues it’s out of stock!
