Experience

I started taking this pill to stop terrible periods that really did make daily life very difficult sometimes as bleeding was insane. I had a couple of months where I had spotting and awful cramps way worse than with period, but I put up with it and it passed. I now haven’t had a period in months which has been lush. The loss of sex drive has diminished all intimacy with my hubby, I haven’t had sex in four months and tbh this has had a very negative effect on my marriage as I wonder if I am still in love with him as I don’t fancy it EVER! My mood has plummeted, feel like my mind is in a dark cloud, can’t think, feel numb, get upset and on edge nearly all the time. Now I have a dilemma come off it and bleed so bad again or continue on this path of doom.
