I have been taking Errin for almost 2 months. I have experienced the most incredible PMS symptoms that started 2 weeks before I got around to actually starting my period. I haven't noticed any weight gain to date, but my cravings have been out of control, acne, cramping, bloating, my breasts are killing me, and my period is going on a week long (so far). I've also noticed increased clottin ... Show Full Comment
