I have been on Trivora for about 1 and a half years now. I get very bloated right before I get my period. I have at least 1 migraine every month about a week before my period and it has lowered my sex drive dramatically.

I have been taking off of Trivora, but my period has not begun and I am not pregnant. Has any one else had this happen? Should I be worried?
