Experience

It was the worst contraceptive I’ve ever used. I had pelvic pain from day 1, and it continued until I had it removed 11 months later. I just couldn’t deal with the never ending pelvic pain and serious mental health side effects I was suffering.

I felt normal again. My mood lifted, I wasn’t so emotional and angry all the time. My pelvic pain disappeared.
