Experience after taking

No more prolonged bleeding and cramps and banging headaches which I suffered with .I was recommended this contraception to try but unfortunately it doesn’t suit me after four months I could no longer suffer the side effects do had it removed which was lucky as it wasn’t in place so therefore I could have fallen pregnant .Ive heard it works for a lot of women but I’ve tried lots of contraceptives and am not able to continue with any of them due to the side effects being too bad and interfering with my daily life
