  • Loved that you only had to mess with it 2 times a month. Liked that I couldn't feel it. But, HATED that it KILLED my sex drive.

  • Used it for 6 months..Never had any problems with it except that I got pregnant with it even though it was used correctly and didnt' take any kind of medications.. That was almost 6 years ago when it was new and just out on the market.

  • i'm not a long term user. I've actually only been using it for a few days but so far I absolutley love it!!! MY discharge has increased which is fine by me. I have issues with dryness so this makes sex with DH a 100 times more enjoyable for me. And also my hubby could not feel it. Hopefully I don't have any issues on it because I would love to use it for a long time.

  • i am not a long time user but i did use it for a few months and i could not stop eating. i was constantly hungry. but it was the best birth control i ever looked into using. i am not a pill person so it was great for me. i did skip a period when i took it out though. so that kind of freaked me out. but i think it was just to regulate myself again. but i would use it again if i needed to.

  • i love it. i'm on it right now. i get lighter periods and i just set it and forget it. no side effects, didn't kill my sex drive, fiance can't even feel it during sex. i can't feel it at all, you just set the calendar on your phone to remind you when to take it out and put a knew one in and other than that you just forget it's there

  • I was on it for about a year and loved it! I never experiences any side effects. My husband could feel it during sex, but said it wasn't uncomfortable.
