Experience

The first two years of having this was terrible, the pain used to make me cry but it was worth it cause my periods were shorter, though heavier (not so heavy now). I cant use tampons anymore cause it triggers thrush which I’d never had before this. The only real side effect was the pain everything else was just my body adjusting to it’s natural hormones. Third year is much better, pain is normal and bearable now, my skin has settled down, I experience everything as it should when it comes to period time. I would recommend it as it’s for 5 years and not everyone has pain with it, it’s also a natural product so no severe side effects come with it.
