Experience

I lost my periods, which is great. They used to be really painful, but now I no longer have to skip school/work. I gained lots of weight (+20lb). I’ve got more spots than I used to have, but I can treat this. Overall, it’s well worth it. Working to lose weight (still at a healthy weight, but at the top of the healthy bmi). The negative feelings and uncontrollable sadness only lasted 3 months.
