Experience

I had far heavier, very irregular (more frequent) periods. I had a week of terrible cramps and mood swings before each period, and overall a really noticeable drop in mood over time. I took this after having my first baby, and persevered for 7 months assuming that my mood swings were linked to my life change. I feel much better immediately after coming off this.
