    A complete GAME CHANGER!!!! I am 52 and have had heavy cycles my whole life but the last couple of years have been horrendous. Became anemic and sleep with pads on my bed as heavy duty pads couldn't always contain the sudden gush. I have had no issues at all and my period time frame has lessened as well as the flow.

    This helped lessen my flow by at least 50%, however, the side effects were not worth it. I felt very dizzy and "out of it".

    This pill does help minimize heavy bleeding. I use to have severe clotting during my cycles and when I take the pills it has lessened some. This is just my second menstrual cycle taking the pill (I am 49). However, this time, I did notice the chest pains others have mentioned. It is not severe, but I have never had it before taking this pill. Also, both months, I did not take the pill as directed. ... Show Full Comment

    I've experienced heavy periods due to fibroids and ended up having a blood transfusion due to serious anemia. I feel normal again. I was using ultra sized tampons with overnight pads changing every two hours. I feel more at ease since using this product
