Experience

I thought that I wasn’t affected badly until I came off of it the first time and my mood improved so much and my skin cleared up. Those were the only side effects I experienced but they were significant ones. I now have more cramps since coming of them though. I then went back on it for a bit and came off again, my mood improved but my skins gotten worse.

Experience after taking

The first time I stopped my moods improved markedly and skin improved. I went back on it but then came off again, my moods improved a bit but my skin has gotten worse. My period cramps are slightly worse and I get random ovary pain.
