Experience

I have PCOS and while being on a hormonal pill helped mask syptoms such as bad cramping and extra body hair i fell much better not being on it any more. I feel much happier generally, my sex drive came back and lost some weight. When i first came off the pill i didn’t have a period for 7 months but now i’m fairly regular, around a 31 day cycle.
