Experience

Where to start… I’ve put excellent as in it stopped my extremely debilitating periods (that I was told were IBS for 12 years but was actually endo- didn’t manage to get a consultant appt til 2018) so I could finally function at the age of 32. However in the last 7 years I’ve gone from 11st to 20st. The only change has been starting this pill. I am too frightened about my painful periods to stop it so I’m in a catch 22 :( Pls bug ur Gp if u think u have endo or pcos- don’t let them bully u into thinking it’s IBS or ‘in ur head’. My chance of having children is now slim to nothing due to how I was treated for years.
