Experience

This contraception is fantastic for those that want minimal effort when it comes to contraception. My periods have become very heavy and fairly painful since using this contraception, but nothing I can’t handle. Being non-hormonal, it’s my favourite contraception by far as I feel like I’m back to being myself since being on the pill for around 4 and a half years.
