Advice & Tips:
I started taking this because of my endemetriosis and ovarian cyst. It was odd because I found when I ran out before seeing the doctor again (I do not take the sugar pills, I only have the right ovary) I noticed that when I was on it my mood swings weren't as bad. When I was off of it my mood swings were terrible, my night sweats were terrible and my heat flashes were terrible. So while I am on this it stables out all that and I don't have them as often. I still do have mood swings, but not as severe as I would without this medication (I do suffer greatly from depression which causes mood swings as well). I really think that this has helped me out a lot when it comes to all the "fun" stuff us ladies have to go through.
