Experience

Great to fit and forget about, but due to the lack of libido it caused me, it was it’s own form of contraceptive! However in my experience, this was a rare side effect when discussing with others on the method. Really good for someone with busy schedules who is not able to be regimented with taking a pill or ensuring you are back for an injection in time
