Experience

Really rate as a form of contraceptive — initial fitting was fine (just like bad period pains afterwards). Hassle free and love not having to think about contraception for a couple of years. It has made my periods heavier, but not more painful. My partner was able to feel the strings a few times during sex at first but they have now softened. Mixed reviews online re mooncups and IUD but for me it’s working. Very few cons compared to most contraceptives; strongly recommend.
