Experience

I bled constantly from the first month for the next 2 years until I had it removed. Initially, this was the only side effect, however over the year my mood became so bad. I was emotional all the time and developed anxiety. After a couple of removing having it removed, everything returned to normal and I feel so much better.

Experience after taking

I returned to normal after two months. After the first two weeks of coming off, I had a major emotional dump but since then I have felt like my old self.
