Experience

Really recommend the injection. Loved that it stopped my periods completely. No effect on my mood which was great as other contraception’s I’ve used have made my mood really low. Really convenient only having to get it every 12 weeks.

Experience after taking

Took a while to get back into my normal period cycle but they eventually returned to normal. No other bad effects after stopping to use it.
