Experience

For the first month and a half I bled continually but this did stop and over the past 5 years my ‘periods’ have become less and less frequent and lighter and lighter (about every 6 months and barely more than a little discharge). I like not having periods and find this extremely convenient. However I do feel my mood has been very ‘flat’ ever since taking this and my sex drive is super low. Increasingly I’m also experiencing vaginal dryness. My gynaecologist (I live in mainland Europe) thinks this is due to the low oestrogen. I would love to feel more like ‘me’ but the idea of being on a rollercoaster of emotions through a monthly cycle is very much not appealing either.
