Experience

I did not have a positive experience using this contraception. I felt that it altered my mood dramatically in unpleasant ways, in addition to being very uncomfortable to remove and replace. I also struggled with frequent headaches, and bloating. That being said, it did reduce the flow and length of my period which was a desired effect.

Experience after taking

Almost immediately after stopping this contraception I noticed a positive change to my emotions and moods. My periods started to come become heavier and longer again.
