Experience

My body is awful on hormones so this felt like the only option left. In the beginning it was painful and the heavier periods made me think it was a bad choice however it calmed down and the slightly longer and heavier periods and harder cramps once a month are worth it for not having any mood swings or hormones pumped round my body.
