Experience

I have been using it up to 10months, and the first 6months of it was all good without period. But with a bit of headaches, when it get to 8months I was having headaches and cramps, thinking it’s going to stop I was spotting all through with no stop accompanying with cramps .so I decide to stop taking it.
