Experience

Used it for a few years with no issues but then started to get pain during sex, so stopped taking it and it has gone away. My periods have come back but are definitely shorter than before.

Experience after taking

I’m glad I’ve stopped taking it as it wasn’t doing my sex life any favours overall. It was fine for me for the first few years but I guess everyone’s body changes as they mature, and this became unsuitable for me.

Had a similar experience?
