Experience

Depressive thoughts! Cystic spots all over my cheeks throughout the month! So painful. It really got me down. My mum actually suggested to me to stop taking it. It’s not worth feeling so crap. The spots you couldn’t even hide with make up! My mood was low. I think it did impact my mood and the cystic spots didn’t help

Felt much better I still get spots but I’m not on anything so it’s just my natural hormones which is fine. My skin is no longer full of cystic hard painful lump spots
