Experience

I’ve stopped using it because my libido completely disappeared. This is an unacceptable side effect in my opinion, as it can negatively impact my relationship and mental health. I also had no period at all, which is good but ultimately made me anxious about accidentally getting pregnant and finding out too late.

Experience after taking

I stopped using microlut two weeks ago and I’ve noticed that I have a hint of libido again, hooray, and increased vaginal lubrication.

Had a similar experience?
