Experience

I started coming off hormonal birth control for nearly a month now before I was on the implant but that caused me to gain weight and feel hungry all the time and depressed and made my periods crazy but now I’ve just decided for my contraceptive method is to go hormone free and it’s the best decision I ever made at least I know I will get my periods every month I can track when it’s my ovulation and when it’s safe to have sexual intercourse I chose this method because at the minute I am not in a relationship I’m a single 24 year old woman and I thought this method with no hormones being pumped in my body is the right choice at the minute for me I’m giving my body a break from hormonal birth control at the minute due to the covid 19 situation going on around the world it has been the best decision so far no hormones natural periods every month no side effects I feel healthier my skin has improved a lot since going hormone free
