My GP has just prescribed me Ovysmen. He said I’m supposed to have 3 a day but he started me off on a months trial at 2 a day.
After looking at the box and reading the instructions…the tablets are just “the pill” which I read was a poor female hormone that wouldn’t really do enough. However he clearly stated the areas that would change
Each tablet contains
500 micrograms Norethisterone PH Eur
35 micrograms Ethinyloestradiol PH Eur
Don’t know if that means anything to anyone.
Less body hair ( thicker hair on my head )
Fat redistribution ( hips, breasts )
Better Skin ( softer, less greasy )–> I will then smell different because of this
Mental state change ( would be more likely to cry than get angry)
To me that seems like quite a nice list of things that it can do, which begs the question, if a cheap set of tablets like Ovysmen can do it then what would be the need for other more expensive tablets?
So now I’m doubting the effects of this drug…is it really gonna do anything?
Finally I’m not sure how to take the drug. Should I take both tablets at the same time ( like as soons as I get up ) or should I space them out ( One when I get up and one before I go to sleep )
How long will it be before the effects will kick in?
Should I start Laser hair removal now? Or should I wait for the drugs to start taking effect/see if I can get some stronger hormones after my month trial?
I’m 18 years old by the way
