Experience

The IUD is honestly one of the best contraception’s I’ve used. I deliberately went for the non hormonal as after being on the mini pill my body needed a break from all the hormones. My anxiety went completely after stopping the pill and getting the IUD fitted. I never have to remember to take a pill anymore. The only thing I hated was the fitting. My nurse was so lovely, but it was honestly HORRIBLE.
