Experience

I’m very happy that this is a method I can rely on for 10 years. My periods vary from slightly more painful to the odd one where the cramps are terrible. Bleeding is definitely heavier at the beginning but after that are barely noticeable. The fitting was painful but not unbearable, worth it for 10yrs of worry free (almost) contraception.
