Experience

I mean its doing its job! I haven’t gotten pregnant, I have noticed a few pros and cons however. My acne is gone & my periods are much lighter and easier to deal with. I do suffer from random painful cramps in the region where you usually get menstrual cramping. I have gained some weight, nothing substantial. I also have no s*x drive! Its an odd side effect…
