Experience

I started this pill after having the implant removed due to loss of sex drive. I did not find that my sex drive returned or increased but it has only been about 3 months so may not be enough time. However, what I did find, was that my moods were terrible. I was angry all the time and fairly depressed. My periods were also heavier and more painful. Probably the worst pill I have been on so I have now stopped taking it.
