Experience

This is my first use of contraception and I don’t really know about the difference in my sex drive as I have only recently started having sex. I had slight acne for the first couple of months and was a little bit more emotional but now all that has calmed down. My boobs have gotten bigger (which I don’t mind) but they are still very tender. As well I do have womb cramps but they aren’t so bad. My periods are SO much lighter and nowhere near as painful as what they used to be! All in all I’m pleased with this contraception method.
