Experience

I got the Ballerine after trying The Kyleena and Nuva Ring. Both didn’t work well for me so my gynaecologist suggested the Ballerine because it’s flexible and small and of course hormone free. My experience wasn’t so great … I got horrible periods, extreme sharp pains when I enganged my core (I’m a fitness trainer and PT so that was brilliant) and I simply felt uncomfortable all the time. Then I started reading articles that quite a few women were getting pregnant while they were using the Ballerine so I had it taken out. Simply because the periods were unbearable, I had sharp pains and didn’t feel confident using it anymore.

My period went back to normal and I stayed off birth control, I’m currently still looking for my ‘perfect fit’.
