Experience

I’m still very early on and waiting for the coil to settle but I have had frequent waves of period pains during the month when not on period. Also spotting and discharge. Hoping it settles as it is a contraceptive I would like to stick with. Only cons atm is that I don’t think I should be taking ibuprofen daily.
