Experience

No problems with this contraception, at first I had a few mood swings but these seemed to even out. The insert was painless, except for a bit of bruising afterwards. My bleeding is on and off, and can sometimes be brown, but doesn’t last as long as a usual period and I have been reassured this is normal.Overall, the perfect contraception for silly people like me who can never remember a pill!
