Experience

Depression anxiety severely increased to the point I was suicidal where I’ve never been before.keeps trying to eject causing very painful cramps and shooting pains. Deep throbbing pains in the right side more often. Severe acne that itches and has scarred my face. Sweating has increased has caused my armpits to be very itchy. All secretions seem stronger. Dizzy and headaches are making me more exhausted and have spotted non stop since it’s been in.
