    Do not recommend this to anyone-worst mistake I ever made. I have only had 2 shots but have never felt this bad in my life! Mood swings, fatigue, can't sleep, can't eat,no sex drive, can't move-can't do anything! Feel like absolute crap! I don't even feel like myself anymore.

    I do not suggest this bc at all. It was the worst mistake i ever made. It made me gain 20 pounds and I had lots of break through bleeding. My skin got worse too and I have always have good skin and this made my skin greasy even my hair. I suggest to think really hard about it if you are wanting to go on it!
