Experience

I liked this pill to start with- I have acute anxiety and I found this pill really helped to balance my hormones however I have lost a severe amount of weight (53kg to 47kg). To start with I was bleeding between periods but recently I’ve been experiencing periods lasting up to 3 weeks which makes me feel dizzy and sick, not sure how much the pros out weigh the cons.
