Experience

Coming off the pill due to emotional changes, this has really been amazing-love having a natural cycle and feeling like my body is free of any artificial hormones. Also love not having to think about it. Periods are slightly heavier and more painful but manageable with pain killers. I did not have very heavy periods before so may not be good if you have heavy periods already.
