Experience

It did what I needed it to do and without a lot of fuss. I also didn’t have period for the whole time I was on it which was great however I felt numb emotionally a lot of the time and since coming off of it I’ve felt emotions more fully, had a higher sex drive and better self esteem.

Experience after taking

I haven’t been off it long but can already feel a change. I wouldn’t be against going back onto desorex but for now it’s nice to be hormone free!
