Experience

Had all the side effects. Bloating, weight gain (lost all the extra weight as soon as i stopped taking the pill without any diets or excercise) Loss of libido, pain during sex and probably worst all all – yeast infection that would reniew every month even when taking antifungal tablets (stopped after stopping the pill). On the other hand, this might not apply to everyone. My friend has been taking it for years and seems to have no or very little side effects.
