Experience

So I’ve not been used for long. But since having this inserted, my low and depressive moods from my periods have gone, and I feel much happier. I have found I have completly lost interest in intercourse and have suffered with vaginal dryness (I’m only 19 years old). Cramping like my period was starting so nothing new when it came to pain. My appetite has vanished since insertion and family have already commented how I’ve lost weight. I had a c section 7 months ago, doesn’t seem to cause pain at the scar area. Skin hasn’t changed either. Just increased crampings and dizziness. Hope this helps. I’d recommend to any woman who struggles with hormones.
