Experience

Primarily took this to even out PMT symptoms which it did but after a few months I realised that although my moods fluctuated less I was continuously miserable. I’d also hoped that my periods would stop however they became far more frequent and irregular. Found it really easy to remember to take it as you don’t have a break in pill taking which is great from a contraceptive side of things.
