My boyfriend and I used this last weekend, for the first time ever, and ever since I have been experience what I can only describe as pregnancy symptoms. I was ovulating last weekend but it should still be too early for symptoms if I were pregnant, so I am assuming it was the VCF. I never have breast tenderness before a period, but I do now. I rarely cramp and when I do they aren't that bad, f ... Show Full Comment

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!

Then I had to go to the bathroom. I reached down to wipe and the sticky balls were coming out so I had to shove them back up. While having sex, it made my natural lubricant very sticky and very drying. I tell yo ... Show Full Comment
