Experience

I have regular, very light periods approximately every three and a half weeks. Ordinarily my moods are quite stable, but I can be irritable and moody in the days leading up to the period and sometimes during the period itself. The period lasts up to a week but is so light that a liner is fine. No cramps. Otherwise, the contraception is very good, insertion was easy enough, and I’m pleased with it. Would recommend.
