Experience

Prior to the injection, I was using the rigevidon pill. The injection has been much better for me personally, I used to suffer from heavy and painful periods and the injection has stopped my periods altogether which has been ideal. I have it every 12 weeks which also means I don’t have to worry between injections! The only negative aspect has been weight gain but the positives much outweigh any negatives.
