I am almost done with my first pack. I was SO afraid when I started taking it because of the reviews I read on here. But, I havent had any problems accept my breasts feeling a little swollen and fuller (I am already full chested) Its really easy to take I sometimes wonder if its really working since I havent had any side effects.

I've been taking this since March of 2012 it is now July 2012. The first month I had no issues, then during the second and third month I had 3 yeast infections about 2 weeks apart each time.
