Experience

I’ve been on Kyleena for 2 and a half year now, and overall it’s been great. After cycling through many different types of Birth Control Pills, and trying the Nuvaring, this was my solution! I have a busy travel schedule and could not always remember my pills, so not having to think about contraception has been a huge weight off my shoulders. Overall very few side effects except for: – change in period length, flow, and timing, with period now having completely gone – increase in body hair on my torso and face (not very happy about this, but not a big deal overall) – some cramping when I was about to get my period For a 5 year solution, it was worth the money and I can’t imagine going back to another contraception now.
