Experience

Had previously been on the pill, gained a lot of weight, unable to shift it, mood swings, enlarged breasts etc. Wanted to try something with no hormones to try and get my body back under control. Had the IUD for around 9-10 months. Periods have become regular, lost weight, mood swings are under control. I do get bad cramps probably the week before and during my period but the good outweighs the bad.
