Experience

This form of contraception worked amazingly for my body, I had none of the obvious side effects (weight gain, acne etc). Whilst it stops your periods completely the only issue I had when I first started was I was spotting daily (barely anything) for about 3 months and then over the next 2 years spotted about 3 or 4 times (although I think this may have been stress induced) and spotted for the first time in 3 years a few weeks ago- always light and nothing that can’t just be wiped away! It is convenient to my lifestyle as I am always on the go and remembering to book 1 appointment every 12 weeks rather than remembering to take 1 pill every day works for me.
