Experience

It works great as birth control I haven’t had one pregnancy scare it is a very effective method you forget it’s there and don’t need to take a pill daily ideal if you can’t tolerate the pill it stays effective still even if you have vomiting it’s 99% reliable it taken around a year for my body to fully get used to the horemones in it when I first had it my periods where very crazy and random they came when I wasn’t expecting them the only downside of this birth control is the irregular periods and bad headaches I recommend it to anyone everyone will have a different experience on it.
