Experience

I have acne like a teenager, super sore breasts and back during ovulation and the week leading up to and of my periods, no sex drive and had 3 x 7-day heavy (think of the film Carrie!) periods in 5 weeks! My mooncup overfloweth with 15ml filling in just over 2-3 hours’ time, and ironically I was prescribed this pill to help with my irregular periods due to endometriosis. I can’t tolerate it any more after just over 3 months. I can’t tell if it effected my weight that much, I regularly every day and I don’t use scales, but clothes fit a little tighter than they used to do before I started them so I guess I did gain a little weight, I probably would have noticed it more if I didn’t exercise as much as I do. Disappointing overall.
