Experience

I started using Mercilon at aged 22, it was the first time I had ever gone on a pill. Apart from being an emotional wreck which isn't normal for me, I had terrible thrush for 4 months straight. I treated the thrush with over 6 courses of anti-fungal/ antibiotics tablets and suppositories as well as used candida cream and lastly I tried boric acid capsules. All seemed to help a little but the problem persisted until after my third health care practitioner suggested that it was the pill that could be the problem. I stopped the pill and the next week I was free from thrush! This was one horrible experience that I hope nobody else has to go through.

Experience after taking

It felt amazing after I stopped using Mercilon. Finally the thrush subsided, my moods returned to normal and I was all round much better!
