First off, I'm 24 and have been on birth control for 8 years. So this review is not coming off of inexperience. I've always suffered from heavy bleeding and unbearable cramps.

As long as it does its job, i'm ha ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had previously been taking Beyaz which I absolutely loved and never had a single negative thing to say about it. My Doctor wanted to switch me to Generess. I was worried to switch because I loved Beyaz and also after reading Generess reviews I was scared of side effects. But I've been taking it for 3 weeks now and I haven't noticed any side effects. I feel great and the same as I did bef ... Show Full Comment
