Experience

I’m quite young so I wanted the younger audience to have a review to look at. 21 and started using it, so my drive is crazy, it’s somewhat annoying because my libido doesn’t match my boyfriends. I get mood swings that I’m really sad very rarely but it’s something I can deal with. Irregular spotting doesn’t seem to be spotting and makes me feel uncomfortable in that area because I can feel the irritation or sensation. Which is making me uncomfortable quite a lot of the time, pee has more hormones in it which I can smell and I think I’ve gained some weight. But it can be worth these affects for being protected, it’s just a lot to get used to.
