Experience

Bled contstantly for the first 3 months but stopped after body adjusted. Developed thrush and had to go on 6 month treatment plan. Massive increase in breast and hip size – but otherwise no noticiable weight gain changes. Skin didn’t change. Sex drive increased. Bit more teary when getting used to the pil but this has subsided.
