I was on the pill for 2 years & I believe this was the starting point for my candida overgrowth. I felt fine before I was taking the pill, then after being on it for 2 years, I started to get multiple yeast infections to the point of not being able to get rid of the them anymore. Four years & multiple gyno appointments later, I finally believe I have candida. Every gyno I went to couldn’t find anything wrong with me so they just put me on antibiotics, which at the time, I didn’t know the result of taking them would be negative. I thought with every different med I would be cured from my unknown illness. Hopefully I’m on the right track now. No longer on the pill & haven’t been for 1 1/2 years with no plan to return.
