Experience

for the first 10 months i had no period, breasts reduced in size and a general loss of sex drive but not to the point where i was concerned. I then got an extremely heavy period for two weeks and since then I’ve been spotting/ on my period every day. I havent gone a day without having to wear a pad/panty liner in 7 months. i got given oestrogen to thicken the lining and stop the bleeding but it only made the problem worse. Only get this if you naturally have a lot of oestrogen (PMS, naturally tender breasts, mood swings) so your body can balance out the progestogen. Or if you have a private gyno who can see you quickly if any problems arise. the NHS waiting times have made this problem 10x worse. DO NOT RECOMMEND
