"I was on the pill for years and had gotten to a point where I didn't notice my periods at all and only bled for a day and a half. When I switched to and IUD, I noticed my periods came back with a vengeance. In the last 6 months, it had gotten back to being as bad as they were before birth control. When I told another IUD having friend that I was still having periods and really bad PMS, she told me to get an estrogen shot. That seemed like a last resort to me, then I stumbled upon this product. I start taking them about a week before my period start date (I have an app that tells me when) and was unsure if I should have been taking the all month, but the week before and during my period seems to be working wonders. I'm bleeding less, I'm not crazy emotional ( I used to cry when people talked at me too loud while on my period. No longer!), and I'm not nauseous anymore during my time. It's back to the regular I felt when I was on the pill and I love it! It really seems to have leveled out my hormones. I can't praise it enough! I tell all of my friends with implants to take them. It works great. I've even noticed a little weight loss and my appetite has curbed."
