Experience

The first 2 months I was completely fine on levest but by the third I had gotten thrush, my moods were beginning to fluctuate and I had a complete loss of sex drive. I think got quite severe vaginal dryness to the point where I couldn’t even have sex it was so painful. (I would recommend Dr Wolffs Vagisan to anyone with dryness). Also the cramping I had during my pill break on levest was unbearable. Obviously everybody is different and will react differently to this pill but personally I would never go back on levest. I am now using Cerelle mini pill and hopefully this will work better for me
