Experience

All in all the pill worked great for me up until a couple of months ago I constantly got thrush. Went to the doctors multiple times and tried everything to fix it nothing worked. I decided to see if the pill was the cause so I came off it. I’ve been off it 6 months now and I haven’t had a single case of thrush! The doctor said it probably has nothing to do with it but I think its important to listen to your body

Experience after taking

Although I’d rather be safer and use contraception the pill just no longer worked with my body but I don’t regret my decision I’m much happier
