Experience

A lot of monthly cramps, that I thought would lessen after 6 months but they unfortunately did not. I used to have light periods without hormones and thought I would be able to cope with it, but it’s left me really struggling for 2 to 3 days every month where I would struggle to go to work or do anything.
