Experience

I’ve only been on it a week. In that time I’ve had a headache every day. The last couple of days I’m overly emotional & foggy headed. Sex drive increased, but in a needy way, not a fun way. Initially I felt my metabolism change, it may have levelled out – hard to tell yet. Might come off it, find it very worrying there are so many side effects. Nurse said there weren’t really any, I personally am not convinced health care have your best interests at heart & they push pills like drug dealers. I think hormone pills mess with mental health.
