Experience after taking

I’ve only been off it a month. I’m hoping my sex drive will increase and I’ll lose some weight. The first week I had dizziness and nausea, second I had migraines (where I had to sit in a dark room) and very tender breasts/nipples in my 2nd/3rd week

Had a similar experience?
