Experience

I’ve been using this method on and off over the last 6 years or so and have no real issues with it. It’s very convenient for my lifestyle and I’ve had minimal side effects (loss of sex drive and no periods while on it, though my periods return to normal straight away)

Experience after taking

Not much had changed after I came off the injection. My periods returned to my normal cycle, though they are lighter. And my sex drive went back to normal. But in terms of other changes, there were none.

Had a similar experience?
