Experience

Fitting was simple but even ibuprofen did not prepare me for the cramps afterwards. Generally feel its a great methods of contraceptions having tried the implant (twice), injection and pill. Periods are lighter and more regular than the implant but can get unbearable cramping randomly (which didn’t happen before). Would definitely recommend just takes a while to settle down (6months or so).
