Experience

I started taking this for dysmenhorrea when I was 16 and stayed on it for 10 years. I stopped taking it for a while in my 20’s and realised what it was doing. It had almost entirely removed my sex drive and gave me a very flat mood. On the positive side, it gave me light, easy to manage periods with the option to skip them. My skin cleared up and if it doesn’t work for you, you can stop taking it with no fuss.
