Experience

Worked great for a few years until I realised it had all but destroyed my sex life. No sex drive, pain during sex – I’m so angry that it stole this important aspect of myself for so long. Glad to be rid of it.

Experience after taking

Sex drive improved pretty quickly. Still no period but I know it can take a little while to return to normal. So far the side effects of quitting have been no where near as bad as the side effects whilst taking.
