Advice & Tips: See also my comments on my estrogen treatment as this was taken for the same reasons. The unexpected benefit was simply that the plan worked! I really didn't think it would. Impact on daily life was huge: stopped having weeks of heavy blood flow. Taking it for two week on and two weeks off allowed me to predict with some reliability when I was going to have a period and it reduced the sloughing/blood flow significantly.
