Hi. I just had a baby (3 weeks ago) and would like to know more about the Merina option of contraception. How long does it last for? Cost? Side-effects etc. Thanks a lot!

It lasts for 5 years , costs about R1000 plus the consultation fee and fitting by the gynaecologist. The commonest side effect is scanty or absent periods.
