I have been on this for a week and I have not felt myself. I experienced increased anxiety, trouble sleeping,moodiness,as well as an increase in appetite and cravings. I have felt lousy overall. I took it out this morning and I am hoping I will actually sleep tonight without my heart racing. I have 2 kids and I can't afford not to be myself. I will look for another method of B/C.

I love how easy it is. It will slip out while using the bathroom sometimes, or during intimate moments. Also led to weight lots of weight, even with diet and excercise. Also hated the lack of sexual desire. Stopped using after 5 months because of the symptoms. Lost 25 pounds easily, however didnt find another method and got pregnant.

Easy to use, very effective...but don't like some of the side effects, including decreased sex drive, vaginal dryness & discharge, and weight gain. I gained about 10 pounds and cannot seem to lose it. I have now changed methods, so we'll see how things turn out.

It is a litle hard to get in place exactly right. And since there is no generic option for it (yet) it can be a little expensive. If you don't get it in a good position the first time, it can have a tendence to almost slip out and you have to keep trying to get it back in. That is my biggest complaint. Otherwise, it was fine.
