Experience

It was great in so many ways – didn’t have to think about taking a pill and it didn’t impact me mentally. However, as time went on I started to gain a lot of weight, and had huge purple stretch marks and I never got stretch marks so came off it and the stretch marks disappeared . No periods though was fab
