Experience

Started taking this as an operation for endo last year didn’t improve periods. Took first one on first day of period. Period then lasted two days and the usual breast I get two weeks before my period went. Around two weeks later I started spotting again and now my breasts are HUGE and very sore. I’ve found if i take with food I don’t get headaches or feel sick anymore. Emotionally I’ve been a bit wobbly but a month in I’m feeling better. Would love for the light bleeding and cramping to stop though. Oh this pill seems to make me wee a lot more too.
