Experience

The progesterone-only is great because you don’t get a period, so that’s the major perk. I had no period for three years, and it was amazing. Once i came off it, i noticed a slight increase in sex drive, so i think it impacted that. I don’t know if that is this particular brand, or a known side-effect of the progesterone-only pill generally.

Experience after taking

I had a light period for two month with no cramps, which was good. It started to kick back into normal by about month three with some cramps and normal period flow.

Had a similar experience?
