Experience

A fantastic option in terms of low risk of getting pregnant and no need to remember to take etc. I regularly feel a pain/ache in my womb (like period pain) which can vary from low level to sharp stabbing pain. I feel a lot less ‘hormonal’ and my emotions are very much in control unlike when I used no contraception. The first few weeks I had an increase in cystic acne spots along my jaw line, but these settled and went away fairly quickly.
