I recently visited my gyno after experience bleeding during sex, which according to the internet is nothing good. However, the more I thought about it, the more I realized I had begun experiencing symptoms since switching from Kariva to Azurette about eight months ago.

I was automatically switched from Kariva to azurette which I thought was weird but hoped it would work well for me.

I feel I am RAGING with hormones. I get pissed with a drop of a dime. I find myself yelling at my kids and feeling such anger like never before! I've been on it for a month and haven't stopped bleeding and still get cramps. So far not liking it. I'm going to give it 3 months.
