Experience

I started this as it was recommended by my doctor to help with painful periods as it should stop them. This only worked for 3 months after that they returned as normal even when I was prescribed a mini pill. I had terrible nausea and was prescribed anti sickness tablets. When I finally had enough of it I had to wait at least four months on a waiting list to have it removed. Which wasn’t pleasant as it turns out it wasn’t correctly located!

Experience after taking

As my cycle had been regular after the first three months the only change is that the nausea improved really quickly.

Had a similar experience?
