Experience

Gave me the worst anxiety I’ve ever had in my life, as soon as it got taken out I felt like a new person within a week. Also had a period for around 3 weeks of the month, it was light but completely ruined my sex life. Doctors were so reluctant to take it out and made me go on the pill WHILST having this to control my period. Hormone and crazy overload.
