Experience

my periods became quite irregular as I experienced bleeding every two weeks, although this began to settle down after the 3rd/4th month of taking it. I had gained a bit of weight and my skin became more spotty than usual (but this could have also been due to poor diet at the time). The main reason I stopped taking it was because it caused quite bad nausea which became worse after a few months and affected me almost every day.
