Experience

I tried this because after being told I can’t have the combined pill anymore, I tried a few different progesterone only options which really didn’t agree with me. I felt almost immediately better after the hormones left my system. My periods have been heavier and more painful but this is something I’m willing to deal with if I can avoid all other side effects.
