Experience

I’ve tried quite a few different different ones, but this one so far has been the one that fits me best, personally. My mood is still affected once a month, but hey ho that’s fine. The only two things to note would be that I stopped having periods after some initial spotting, and that my breasts become extremely tender (but only during the time that my period should be). Would use again after this term is up.
