Experience

Bled every day a week after using this pill. No pattern from spotting to bleeding within the space of 2 mins. I took the pill as recommended every day at the same time set by an alarm. I kept persevering but nothing changed ever. So I had enough an stopped. I’ve only just stopped and I hope to get my wedding rings back on as I’ve certainly gained fluid and became more puffy. I got leg cramps alot on this and finally my hair was always greasy nothing stopped it. So I hope now that can get back to normal too.
