Oralcon Contraceptive Pills

This is largely due to the fluctuation in hormone levels, which ultimately have a direct impact on your menstrual cycles. Have you taken a pregnanc...

This pill is definitely not a prescription medicine and really sounds like one of the following three options to me, an illegal substance, a candy of some sort or an over the counter medicine targeting women. If you really need to identify the pill the...
