Saw commercial for free sample Avlimil on TV, signed up for sample and paid $4.50 S&H. Free sample web page was to enter details and payment method details only, no info. on future order charges.

Next month I was charged for $65.50 for 'my order', when I called to cancel and get refund, I was told I had unwittingly signed up for monthly shipments at the time of registering for my free sample. Told I should have read the whole website, not just the sign up for free sample page (as advertised on TV). Free sample web page and TV commercial did not specify that the buyer should check through the whole website before registering for sample.

I was not aware at any point that I had registered for 'Managed Care Direct', was only told Managed Care Direct was responsible for shipping my sample. I consider myself to be a very responsible buyer and would not have registered with this site if I had been made aware of the pitfalls, as the company says I was. I have since checked online and found thousands of women who have been ripped off in exactly the same way, though many were charged much more and continue to be charged even after their 'subscriptions' were cancelled.

I have cancelled my 'subscription' and have also had to cancel my debit card to avoid possible future charges from this company. Have reported this incident to Better Business Bureau. Avlimil should be made to change their intentionally misleading advertising practices when selling this apparently 'free sample'. The Avlimil website does, however, state clearly the terms for ordering full price purchases, I am outraged that the same was not applied to the free sample page. I have been unable to bring up the same sample order page since, I assume that it has been moved or cancelled.
