Experience

After being told to come off Ovranette because I get regular migraines (I was on Ovranette for 5+ years and it was perfect for me). I noticed feeling extremely bloated and uncomfortable within the first few months. I have now gained around 12lb since starting this pill around 16 months ago. Baring in mind I have had no change to my diet and drinking a lot less than I had done previously. I’m also extremely emotional for about 5 days a months and cry a lot! I dream about going back on Ovranette but unfortunately it can’t be prescribed to me because of my migraines.
