Experience

Been on this for around 2 and half years now and haven’t had any issues other than the odd headache and a couple of cases of thrush. my weight has remained the same and I felt more positive in myself and self confidence since being on this. I take it on an extended cycle, s I take it constantly for 3 months and then have a 4 day break for a “period” and then take it continuously again for another 3 months, this has reduced the pain and groggy feeling I used to get with each period but it does mean I have a very heavy and painful 4 day period every 3 months x
