Experience

Although uncomfortable to get fitted, and the first few months of periods are increasingly painful.. This is by far the best contraception I’ve been on! So much easier than having to rely on a pill, not being sick etc etc!! As a female in my early 20’s I’m still enjoying fun and nights out so this is so much better!
