Experience

No problems whatsoever with this contraception. You can just forget its there for 3 years. Stopped my periods completely (I used to get very heavy and extremely painful periods) and I have never fallen pregnant on it. My fertility returned almost immediately after removal however and I fell pregnant within two months (which is what I wanted) but I think there’s a common misconception that you won’t get pregnant straight away after removal and you definitely can.
