You guys, I’m on the placebo parts of my birth control pills right now and man do they taste funky. I’ll tell you what they taste like: have you ever brushed your teeth so hard that they bleed? That’s what it tastes like! I mean, my Minastrin FE pills do at least.
First you eat them and I think they tried to make them taste like breath mints or something—-something minty, spearminty….but it doesn’t have the same consistency of breath mints (these are chewable pills FYI). It tastes like toothpaste. And I guess I never really realized that there was a huge difference in taste of flavor between breath mints and toothpaste, but man, I have discovered that there is. And this is what it tastes like. I’m assuming that the pills have some iron in them, which explains for the blood like aftertaste. There’s a lot of iron in your blood (or there’s supposed to be), which is why your blood has a bit of a metal taste. So when you’re eating iron, that’s why it tastes like blood. At least, this is what I feel like I have heard at some point in my life. Don’t take my word for this.
Are you chewing your birth control?? Cause I swallow mine with water and I do not taste it. If I had to describe the taste it would be bland.
