Experience

Complete loss of sex drive, complete vaginal dryness and ruined my mood. Had the injection Jan 19, it ran out March 19 and by Jan 20 I had only just regained part of my sex drive. My marriage completely fell apart – wouldn’t recommend at all.

The side effects of the contraception took over 9 months to subside, absolutely horrendous.
