Experience

Initial reaction was widespread shallow spots, like dozens of tiny painless blisters, across my face, chest and back. These disappeared within a couple of weeks and didn’t recur. 3 years on, periods are light but I can have spotting/bleeding for a week or two every month. Initially the womb pain was fairly constant, after a year it became milder. I still have cramps/discomfort a lot of the time. On the upside, orgasms are slightly stronger!
