Experience

Overall really happy as I have seen no change in my moods which I had in the past. This is due to the hormones being local to the area rather than in your blood stream. It took a while to get used to as I had severe womb cramps on and off for about 1-2 months, which I luckily had never experienced before. I also had a lot of spotting continuously for 3 months and although my actual sex drive wasn’t impacted, the spotting had a knock on effect. I’m happy with the contraception now that it has regulated in my body, but I did have to commit for 3 months. It also can be removed at any time and the doctor says it only takes 14days for the body to regulate again.
