  • I am 42 and been going through perimenopause since 37, NOBODY wants to be around me off hormones becuz I become a complete “sphyco bitch” I’ve been told. I feel like they placicate me abit too much but at the same time I do have more energy and can sleep better. On bioideticals.

  • Thanks for the Video! Sorry for the intrusion, I would love your thoughts. Have you heard the talk about Xonayson Basketball Supremacy (should be on google have a look)? It is an awesome exclusive product for boosting your time in bed and libido without the headache. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my old buddy Taylor at last got cool results with it.

  • Great Video! Forgive me for the intrusion, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you tried Lammywalness Awesome Nights Guide (search on google)? It is a smashing one off product for discovering how to improve your libido without the hard work. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my close friend Aubrey after a lifetime of fighting got astronomical results with it.
