What is T-Safe used for?

It is a long term contraceptive option suitable for women who cannot take hormone-based contraception (such as women who have migraines, thrombosis, diabetes, or are heavy smokers) or those who prefer not to use a hormone contraceptive due to the potential side effects of weight gain or mood swings. T-Safe 380A QL is a highly effective contraceptive as it is not affected by the majority of medications and it cannot be 'forgotten' like a hormone pill.

How to use T-Safe 380A QL?
