Experience

The only thing I would say is that if I get mad, as in I would be cross anyway, I feel a sort of rage in my gut that I can tell is hormonal and I haven’t felt before using this contraception. That said, it doesn’t happen that often and after the first couple weeks I worked out what it was and so can manage it much better. It doesn’t affect my day-to-day and I’m not really an angry person anyway, just a working Mum of two toddlers who gets grumpy occasionally! It was quite a wait to get from the GP and I worried that I would start my period after having my daughter, and that is supposed to make the adjustment harder, but I had it fitted before and there was very little adjustment period or pain associated. Basically, I love it
