Experience

The fitting was worst 2x5seconds of pain of my life so far, the first few periods were agonising (I threw up the pain was so bad). First few months I also had quite a bit of spotting too. However, 6 months on I have no side effects, my periods are painful, but always have been, occasionally in certain positions my partner can feel the strings. Definitely recommend for those, like myself, who struggle with hormonal contraceptives.
