Experience

Prescribed Zelleta following the birth of my first child and thought any side effects were due to my body settling down following birth. My main concern was my mood swings and womb cramping, basically severe PMS very frequently each month and nothing like I’d ever experienced. I stopped taking this brand of pill all together as the mood swings and PMS weren’t ironing themselves out and began to affect my relationships.
