Experience

I was on it 8 years until today. I have tried both pills, injcetion and then implant. Implant stopped periods for 7 years which i loved! I wasn’t worried. Then the 8th year i got some light periods but not much then the last few months every month but light. Considering ive been on most contraception i liked it the most but my skin was so bad with spots and hormones through the roof! I wanted something with no hormones now… The copper coil however the pain is unbearable and yet to wait and sss what periods are like. Had a lucky escape for 12 years…
