Experience

I’ve been on maexeni for about 5 months and overall had an OK experience for the first 3.5 months. My periods seem lighter but I do experience some discharge a few days prior to the period starting. Also I’ve noticed I have had a low mood (including crying outbursts for no reason) for the past month and a half which has lead me to discussing changing pill with my GP
