Experience

Made me so emotionally unstable I would cry for no reason (once in the supermarket just because I was buying houmous). I was unable to even think clearly. I did not feel like myself. My hands, legs and ears became so itchy I would lie in bed at night crying and scratching myself to sleep. I gained so much weight and my back grew broader. This has put me off ever putting another artificial hormone in my body ever again.

Experience after taking

Took me 6 months to start feeling like myself again but I got there. The changes to my body from gaining weight however are not that reversible. My fat composition is different now and I have extra stretch marks that all thigh have faded we’re not there before.

Had a similar experience?
