Experience

The initial insertion was painful and I had quite a reaction which I was not briefed on. I had a strong painkiller before the procedure and nothing else. It was around 6 months before I started to not have constant cramps and dizziness. The benefit for me as due to my travel and current country of residence access to contraception it is great to know I’m covered for 5years.
