I'm a 22 year old mother off two. Since starting Chateal 3 months ago, I've had many ups and downs. I originally started to get rid of an ovarian cyst.

As per the previous review my hair has been shedding ridiculously bad. I have also been super emotional.. I was sent this instead of my normal Portia. I know they say they have the same hormones but I feel very different on this.
