I started taking it on monday (12/28) and I started with the loading dose. Since I took it, which has not even been a week yet, I have had no side effects at all. I thought everyone got at least a hot flash or two? I'm certainly not complaining, but I'm just wondering if its gonna work for me, because my body is acting like I didnt even take it. My period was the exact same as usual, I've had not even one hot flash, which I thought everyone had, No weight changes, no dryness/irritation, no bloating or cramps, nothing. Green Tea, do you know of anyone who had no side effects ever and it still worked for them as a contraceptive?
