Experience after taking

It took a long time to get my skin back to normal after using Kyleena. It was a really devastating time in my life. I went from the Yasmin pill to this option, thinking it would be alright but was told that acne wasn’t a side effect with kyleena. I have strong reason to believe that was incorrect advice!
