Experience

It’s been great – my sex drive is way better and my mood has been noticeably more positive compared to hormonal methods. I will say I have more PMS / PMDD symptoms before my period starts, and can really notice the shift in my hormones across the cycle. But I would rather feel not great mood wise for a week before my period than all the time (like I did on the implant and when taking a combo pill).
