Experience

I only started this because my sterilisation procedure was postponed due to covid. I’m not great at taking the pill and whilst this is reliable and it was nice to not have a period, I’ll be stopping this asap. My last shot was a week ago and I’m tired, I feel low and I’ve gained weight (85kg up to 95kg) despite maintaining my healthy diet, having a very active job, increasing my exercise regime and using the car less. I don’t know if my age is a factor (I’m 38) but use this one at your own risk.
