I have been on Apri for 3 weeks now and I hate it! I am SO tired ALL the time, I've had a horrible yeast infection (I've only had two others ever and I'm 29)before the vaginal infection, it showed up as thrush in my mouth. I feel like crap, it's affecting my daily life because I just feel very sick and tired.
