Experience

I have had acne since I was 11 (now 25) and I was put on gederal as a low-progestogen alternative pill because my skin was so bad on Rigividon (spelling?) however it has not improved my skin at all. Vaginal dryness and thrush are a persistent problem for me, however I’m not sure that this is a result of this contraception.
