Simplicity and effectiveness is wonderful. Side effects are horrible. Headaches, Moodiness, Cramps, Low Libido, Irregular Periods, Acne. There has to be a better way! I very rarely have a period, but I feel like I'm PMS-ing 3 weeks out of 4.

I love not having to worry about getting pregnant but the side effects are horrible. Mood swings, no period, headaches, and sex drive is gone. I am planning on having it removed in 1 month.
