The Beige pills are to prevent the ovulation and to prevent the fertilised egg to lodge in the uterine cavity. The white sugar pills are the fake pills which have got nothing to do with the fertility or contraception. They just provide a pill free period for bleeding to occur.

Hi, for a long time now have said to people that juice makes me ill. I don't drink fizzy drinks much but when I do drink them I just feel terrible. It starts off with slight pain in the stomach area them overactive bowel movements, itching all over and even more everytime I pass urine. And also just the colour of my complection changes to very pale. I am also prone to ear infections, coughing fits. I used to think it was a caffine intolrance but I am now thinking it has something to do with sweeteners?

I started a diet two weeks ago and started using splenda to make my food more paltable; maybe ten packets a day. I started having ringing in my ears that has increased in both vloume and frequency to the point where I have not been able to sleep at night for the last four nights. I stopped the splenda yesterday, after finally googling for contraindications. Is there any chance that ceasing the spenda (as well as other triggers such as grapefruit, salt, and sugar) that the tinnitus might ease?
