Experience

It appealed to me because of the lack of hormones. I like that I can forget about it for ten years and when it’s taken out I’ll go back to normal fertility. Have had issues with BV since having it implanted which I never had before the coil and thrush. Also horrendous cramps around two weeks before being due on and heavy and long periods.
