Experience

Started using the injection with the appeal of it stopping periods or making them lighter. My first 2 injections were fine, I didnt put on any weight or notice any mood changes. On my third injection I have gained nearly a stone in 1 month and now barely fit in any of my Jean’s. I also wasnt told about the increased risk of osteoporosis
