Experience

Heavy cramping and bleeding for a week after insertion. Spotting and brown discharge at random times of the month. VERY PAINFUL AND LONG PERIODS. In the end I felt my strings were sat different and turns out my coil was misplaced so I had to get it removed. Very traumatising experience.
