I have been on this IUD for about 8 Months. I absolutely loved my experience. The only thing in my case, is that I wanted to get rid of my period completely and since my previous didn’t want to give me the Mirena, I had this one instead. I will still change to Mirena at the end of this month, simply because I really don’t want to bother with having a period anymore but I would still absolutely recommend Jaydess to everyone. Obviously everyone reacts differently to hormones and I would always recommend to try out for yourself. I still think that IUDs in general are the best form of birth control. On Jaydess, my period got super light still about 9 days long (just like my usual period). I had cramping from time to time but nothing too dramatic. My sex drive went through the roof which can be annoying sometimes. My acne may have cleared up a bit. Other than that I felt nothing different.

My first one was fine (no side effects), my second one I have a whole list of side effects, so even if you think it's fine be aware your body reacts differently each time you get a new one

I tried a few different contraceptives until finding the patch and I love it! It’s so much better for me than taking a pill everyday and there’s the freedom to be able to stop using it when I like which I wouldn’t have with the injection or implant - which was important to me because of previous bad experiences with hormonal contraceptives! I love the patch and it’s done for me exactly what I’d hoped it would.

In the beginning it was really good, stopped my periods and was great to have something in and forget about it. However, what started as a breakthrough bleed ended up being 6 months on my period. My mood was also impacted I was always either crying or angry. One of the worst ones I ever tried

Was fine the first few months of being on it but quickly changed and was awful. I’ve tried a lot of contraceptions and this is one of the worst. While it helped regulate my periods it made them so heavy I was bleeding through super tampons and pads and my cramps got so bad I was throwing up. The moods was the worst part I was so depressed and angry all the time I was always losing my temper or crying and there was no in between. As soon as I came off it I instantly felt better.
