    I tell everyone about this drug. It is a miracle. I can't take hormones and I dont want to have surgery. I have been taking it every month for 2 years.

    I've have an ablation (Novasure) about 2 1/2 years ago. Didn't work. I have fibroids. I've been on Lysteda for about 9 months. In the beginning it was good.

I usually go through 1 super size super pack the first 3 days. Day 4 and I've barely gone through 20 pads.
