I experienced infections that I hadn’t had before (i had sexual intercourses only with my boyfriend)

Experience after taking

I had a huge increase of sexual drive after two weeks after i had stopped using the vaginal ring, and my vaginal dryness disappeared, however i got back my terribles, heavy and painful periods.

Had a similar experience?
