Experience

Easy to take, didn’t notice any side effects when I was taking on the 3 week on, 1 week off. When I tricycled (3 packets in a row) I got horrendous PMS for a couple of days with really terrible mood and emotions before my period came. But taking a break every month stopped this and I just had my usual PMS symptoms.

Experience after taking

I was worried it would take some time to go back to a normal cycle but it came back quickly. I didn’t notice any other changes on stopping it.
