Experience

Have had the Kyleena for a year now. Periods have stopped all together but I get extremely painful cramps every month at the time I would usually have a period. I have also now got more oily skin and acne which I didn’t really have problems with before. Considering changing but to be honest I’ve tried most contraceptives now and am losing hope that there is a good one out there.
