Experience

I chose this contraception because I had a bad experience with the contraceptive pills (spotting between periods, low sex drive), and I was said and also read that these hormones act over locally, so I should not have these side effects. DO NOT BELIEVE THIS. At the beginning, I was overall satisfied, but after more than a year, I realized that I am right there where I was, and I would say it was even worse (the sex drive part). On a top of that, my mood was low, I was often tearful, and I suffered from frequent headaches and migrains. I also had a urinary tract infection, which I never had before and never had since I had jaydess removed. When I realized all this, I had this device removed, and I was back to my no-hormones self within couple weeks. To say something positive as well, my periods were way lighter after couple months on jaydess, which I liked, but for me, the cons definitely outweighted the pros.
