Experience

I was on it for around two and a half months. Periods were irregular and fluctuated between heavy and light quite a bit. First month on it was great, the second month I had two periods then on the half of the last month I had two periods. I didn’t have much choice in stopping as we experienced Coronavirus lockdown in the UK and I couldn’t get hold of the medication so I stopped.
