Experience

First pill I tried due to the low dose of progesterone in it (discussed this with my doctor for pre-existing health conditions) and it has worked incredibly well for me. Periods are lighter and nowhere near as painful. I don’t get any of the nausea or dizziness or joint pain I used to get with my period anymore. Only slight issue is more vivid dreaming and an increased ability to recall them. Normally this is fine but if I am slightly stressed about something these turn to nightmares and can ruin a nights sleep.
