Experience

Started this on the first day of my period. Initially I was hesitant because of all the negative reviews, but as my nurse wouldn’t prescribe me anything else as my first pill I took it anyways. The first day I had a panic attack – awful. Then, for the next week I had terrible nausea and had to keep myself from vomiting – even the smell of food would make me nauseous, I almost felt pregnant. I was also very emotional, crying for no reason and getting angry at rather insignificant things. Needless to say, it went straight into the bin after a week. A week later and I’m feeling so much better.

It took about 9 days for my mood to return to normal, and about 3-4 for the nausea to go away. My womb cramps disappeared very soon.
