Experience

If you want to know when your period will be/ control over your cycle this is not for you. My periods were very irregular for the first 2 years (eg. 8 weeks of 5 days bleeding/ 10 days not, then no period for 6 weeks) but have started to settle down now. Not necessarily weight gain but I have found it very hard to loose weight. I won’t be replacing it at the end of the 3 years.
