I started taking this pill due to a irregular period. I was on the pill for about 6 months with no problems whats so ever. Than around the 7th month i started feeling sick all of the time.

Unlike the BC I took before Zovia, I actually have a healthy sex drive with this pill. I ... Show Full Comment
