Experience

The injection is great for me, I get it every 3 months which means I don’t have to worry in between. I have noticed that I am a lot more irritable and gained some weight but nothing too bad that has put me off the injection. It has stopped my periods which has helped me a lot as I suffered badly with harsh period pain.
