Drovelis pill

I'm in peri and have unmanaged PMDD so I'm seeking relief from that. I tried Drovelis because in studies the estrogen showed less of an effect on the receptors in the breasts tissue compared to traditional EE estrogen. I can't tolerate hormonal BC because my breasts react so extremely to the estrogen. Unfortunately this pill caused the same issue. I had to buy a new bra cup size while on it and was in constant pain. I'm sharing my experience incase anyone else out there has these same sensitive breast issues and is looking for a pill. My other symptoms included fatigue that lasted throughout the day (I took it at bedtime) and weight gain in my midsection from water retention. I did not have increased appetite or decreased libido. My mood and sleep were unaffected.
