Experience

I developed horrendous anxiety and confessional OCD after my second dose which was awful. Within weeks of coming off of it I was a lot more calm and myself. Never again. I had no periods which was great and absolutely no period pains. Not worth the anxiety and mental health issues.

Experience after taking

My mental state is so much better. As much as having no periods is great and remembering to take the pill is agg, I wouldn’t use the injection again
