Experience

A little painful to put it, but it’s so nice not having to worry about it once it is in! I think I did put on weight a bit faster than usual, but other than that I haven’t had any big side effects! It’s also nice not having periods for 3 years – I would definitely get it again if we weren’t thinking about trying for children soon :)
