Experience

Love it – literally rave about it to everyone I know. It made such a difference for me – periods stopped entirely and I don’t have to think about contraception. Had it fitted twice – once on the NHS (painful) and once privately for £500 and the private fitting was much less painful and just felt calmer/less rushed. A couple of days of cramps was a small price to pay.
