Experience

I tried this after mycrogynon had caused bad moods swings for a while. This was great for my moods but I had zero interest in sex or my partner. I also had horrendous vaginal dryness and deep cystic acne that came back in every pill free week. I had to come off after three months as the loss of sex drive it was affecting my relationship.
