Experience

started using on 17th of February 2021, about 5 days later I started bleeding like i had my usual period even tho i wasn’t near the date, it is now the 26th march 2021 and I’m still spotting, it normally stops a bit until i do exercise then it comes back. Really bad bloating & cramps on right lower side.
