Experience

I don’t recommend this pill. I’ve been on contraception for most of my life and this affected me negatively; I had several episodes of thrush and one time a vaginal infection (probably due to constant treatment of thrush). It seemed so bizarre to me, wondering what was going wrong because I never had thrush so frequently, every second week as opposed to twice in my lifetime prior. I also had a burst cysts of my ovary after a couple of months I started. It took a pharmacy to say it’s likely hormonal and they were right because after I stopped so did the thrush and vaginal infections.
