Experience

It’s been perfect for me as I don’t have to remember to take something every day, and it’s given me quite an easy ride period-wise. A word of warning, the last time I had mine changed the doctor was shocked that the previous doctors had just made new holes every time I had a new one, as she always tries to just have one scar overall. So maybe ask your doctor about this beforehand if you are getting it changed. Saying that it’s on the inside of my arm which isn’t intrusive or anything it doesn’t bother me really.
