This pill has helped me so much with heavy periods. The first month I spotted, then had a quick, light period. The second month was the lightest period I've had in years. The issue I'm having is I have more cramps on it than off, and the biggest issue is that it's making me moody and tense. I love what it's done for my period physically, but I'm snapping at my family much more than I used to. I see the doctor next week. I'm not sure what I'll do yet.

I've experienced less pain around my uterus and ovaries, cysts are reduced, my breast are slightly enlarged and tender, my bones (especially hip, knee, and ankle joints) ache and hurt occasionally, mysex drive seems to have increased (I still find my partner very attractive just as before, which based on experiences I've seen others go through was a potential risk).
