Experience

It got to the point that I was on my period as much as I was off my period. The loss of blood made me tired and started to make me anaemia. My periods were excruciatingly painful. My sex drive was reduced because of these side effects.

Experience after taking

As soon as the coil was gone my periods went back to normal and I began recovering from the blood loss. Not being in pain all the time improved my mood and reduced my stress.
