Experience

excellent. best choice I made. yes it hurt to get put in but now I don’t ever need to worry. for first 6 months had cramps which hurt a lot and periods would be quite painful, but now I don’t really notice its there apart from mild cramps here and there. my periods actually got lighter which is unusual for the copper iud. I love that it doesnt contain hormones as I react really badly to them.
