Experience

Other than slightly heavier periods this is by far the best contraception for me. I can just forget about contraception and know I am covered for 10 years. It’s great knowing I have no artificial hormones in my body and my cycle is my natural cycle. This has enabled me to get to know my body again. Only issue I have had was really heavy periods for the first 4 - 6 months then things settled down.
