Experience

I started this to improve skin and regularity of my cycle. My skin got worse and I was bleeding every 15 days! I had 2 versions… the first wasn’t so bad (but was in comparison to the pill) but the second was awful and I had it removed after +/- 6 months to switch to the mirena ius.

Experience after taking

I switched quickly to mirena ius so hard to tell what was cause / effect but with mirena I was much more settled, reliable and regular.
