I wish I could give this product zero stars. While it is easy to use and I did not get pregnant, it gave me a yeast infection as well as vaginal burning and swelling. I now have to go to a Gino to get treated by the severity of the heast infection this product gave me. I will never use this or recommend this to another person ever!

My side effect symptoms didnt occur until a day or two after using the VCF. Left lower abdomen hurts, even when walking, radiating to leg n back (like UTI). Don't touch my vijay jay because it feels swollen, inflammed, slightly tingly/itchy. Doesn't burn when urinating, but it hurts inside on left lower abdomen, like UTI.

Comment:
I have been using this product for about three months... It works well considering that its prevents you from getting pregnant. The downside is that it has caused terrible vaginal dryness, burning, and urinary tract infections in both me and my partner...
