Experience

This has been the best contraception I have tried. I was having too many side effects with the pill that I had used for years so I moved to the implant and I bleed nearly continually for a year on that so my sexual health nurse advised a trial of the injection. Three years later I have had no periods, cramps or side effects. It does not hurt one bit either, quickest appointment with the nurse to get it.
