Experience

Awful acne to the point it hurt to smile and talk. Very deep under the skin spots. I never normally suffer with acne. My mood was very low and I was very snappy. I had no sex drive at all on this contraception.

My skin improved once I got the coil removed and within a month near enough back to normal. My mood increased and sex drive returned.
