Experience

I am happy with it but I get occasional stong pains, my skin got clearer and I have ended up experiencing strong discomfort after intercourse for a few days and then it went off. Overall I like it but I know it does not suit everyone as I had a friend and she ended up having contractions for days that were horrible.
