Experience

I’ve always been wary of hormonal contraception but thought I would give it a go after my skin became really bad, and I had just started a new relationship. It was fine at first but now I have such terrible vaginal dryness that sex is painful for both of us – that’s if I even want to have sex, as I have no sex drive at all. I’ve also felt a little dizzy and sick from time to time. I’m definitely stopping and looking at alternative forms of contraception after reading other reviews!
