Experience

As an IBS sufferer I was constantly worried whether my pill had stayed in my system long enough. Also, due to already suffering enough with my tummy I was reluctant to get the coil as I was worried about cramps. I am so pleased I settled on the implant, it was so easy to be inserted, healed quickly and now I am barely aware its there. My periods became irregular but then stopped after ~4 months which again for me is a positive. I really love that its just there working in the background – really recommend!
