Experience

I had the marina fitted due to mild endometriosis and within the next month I had hardly any to no bleeding. Getting it fitted was very painful as I have never had kids (take painkillers) but I will definitely be getting this again. It doesn’t come close to either the combined pill or mini pill for me. Did not change my hormones at all and I have not noticed any other side affects which I got from both pills.
