Experience

I like this type because there is no hormonal side effects so I have no mood issues. The cramps and heavy periods are not pleasant and it costs quite a lot due to having to wear tampons and pads at the same time. However, it’s a much better contraception that any hormonal contraception by far as hormonal alternatives really affect my mood. Would recommend as a non hormonal contraception.
