Brief Answer:
Evident effect in this cycle only

Detailed Answer:
Hello mam, thanks for Trusting health care Magic.
Good to talk to you again.
These new pills will show their effect in same cycle itself and most probably you will not have any breakthrough bleeding this time but in case you have it in this cycle then total relief in next cycle will be there.
All the best best.
