    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.

    I am not sure of the effectiveness of this drug in concert with pregnancy, however I have been using it for 11 days and I have become very moody, my face filled up with acne, and I wanted to eat more than I should. I also stopped working out at the gym. This drug is not good and I do not recommend it to anyone. I will be taking myself off of it immediately.

    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.
