Experience

The first few months brought HUGE mood swings before my period, bad depression. I now bleed in a “regular” cycle alternating ~15 days then ~35 days. It’s a strange pattern but it seems settled in. I think my breasts grew a little and I got some acne (my skin was mostly clear before then). But I am super happy that I have practically no chance of pregnancy, and even though the initial emotions sucked I’m happy for the low maintenance and high efficacy.
