Experience

I asked to trial this as I suffer with hormonal acne and no medication has controlled this, including roaccutane. The first month was an emotional rollercoaster and my boobs were tender and fuller. The second month was calmer emotionally but I started to feel very down and lacked energy. Month three and my skin is awful, I am bloated, feel full and have gained weight but the fatigue is unreal. These symptoms meant I was sent for a gynae endoscopy! I will be stopping after this cycle as there are no positives.
