Experience

I started this pill when I was 18, for the first year or 2 it was fine but then I started to experience really bad vaginal dryness and I was getting thrush every other month. I have been off this pill now for about 3 months and can already see a difference. I was perfect initially I think it just doesn’t work long term.
