Samantha Hayter went on the oral contraceptive pill when she was 16 to manage her severe period pain.
But last week the 24-year-old became one of the first women in Australia to try out a newly available intrauterine device (IUD).
Health minister Greg Hunt announced on Friday that the hormonal IUD Kyleena would be subsidised from March 1, so instead of paying $160 women will pay $41 or $6.60 for concession card holders.
Hayter was on a contraceptive pill that cost $120 for three months.
“I had a bit of cramping like period cramping but nothing ridiculous.”
