Experience

For the first 3 years I had no periods and, as far as I noticed, no side effects. I also never had to think about it, so this was the perfect contraception. Unfortunately after that I started getting unpredictable, irregular spotting and light bleeding, which was annoying and messed with my sex life, so I eventually stopped using it. Brilliant while it lasted though!
