Experience

It’s good if you don’t want to think about taking anything as it lasts for 3 years and you can’t notice it in your arm that much. However, it gave me really heavy periods that lasted for months at a time and caused really bad mood swings and anaemia due to the loss of blood. Having it removed due to these reasons now.
