Experience

It was fine. It made me a bit bloated and it’s a nuisance to take and remember to take. There were also a couple of times when I worried it hadn’t digested properly. It was fine – my periods were a bit heavier and more regular – but they only came when I finished a pack and had a week off. It was handy to occasionally run packs together and delay a period. When I came out of a relationship it was nice to come off it, and not pump my body full of extra hormones everyday.
