Experience

Whilst it helps in the sense that I don’t have to remember to take anything it’s just there, doing it’s job, it has caused issues in the bedroom. Iv lost quite a bit of sex drive and I seem to be spotting for 2 weeks (on and off) with irregular periods that seem to come at the most inconvenient times. I’m past the 6 month “settling” mark. It’s convenient and easy but can be annoying with it’s unpredictability with my periods. I get random cramps every few weeks which is strange.
