Experience

I used norgeston after no today became impossible to get hold of. I was nervous at first after reading so many bad reviews but other than a decrease in libido it was a great pill. Regular light periods, no mood swings, I did gain weight but not a huge amount or enough to make it an issue. Only stopped using as had IUD fitted instead.
