Experience

The first 6 months this was amazing no side effects what so ever, no mood swings, normal period etc. Then after 6 months my periods became more and more irregular till I was constantly spotting, my mood got worse and worse till I was an argumentative cow . I went from wanting sex all the time to having no sex drive and only having sex once every 6 months. My vagina was constantly dry and sore, sex stung and was painful.
