Experience

I’m on this type of contraception as I can’t use the pill due to the drugs I’m on for epilepsy. At the start I had irregular periods. One every four months or so, but after a drastic weight loss (not related to contraception) they evened out and I’m now regular as clockwork. Have a bit of breast tenderness a few days before each period a bit like an early warning system but otherwise no symptoms. I love it!
