Experience

This is the only type of contraception I have used, apart from condoms, and has always worked for me so have had no reason to change it! Stops my periods which I questioned initially but now I know it can be normal, I’m quite glad of it! Not had any side effects other than some weight gain, however I think this is a side effect of most hormone based contraceptives
