Experience

After it was put in I just bled for about three months – nonstop. I was prescribed the mini pill to stop the bleeding but this did not help. It was horrible. Although it was certainly an effective contraceptive – I didn’t want or have sex for the majority of time I was on it! I had it removed as soon as my doctor would allow it (after 3 months).
