    I take this medicine for 10 day program to start my period, but by the 7th or 8th day I get swollen ankles, feet & hands, put on weight, cravings, and get a very very bad migraine... I am not sure if I am goin to continue to use this medicine. I would rather have missed periods then to have these side effects.
