Experience

Has been good overall except for the increased spots and acne. I just started getting more cystic acne than I ever had before and it was a little discouraging to my self esteem. I visited a dermatologist and sorted it out with 2 months of an antibiotic which has helped a lot. Having it put in was fine but I did it in the US and they numbed me first, so I think that reduced the initial pain quite a bit. Otherwise, pretty happy not having to think about it and never getting my period!
