Experience

Painful upon insertion, made me feel very dizzy and lightheaded afterwards. A good choice of contraception for people iffy towards hormones, but my periods are way more painful, heavier and also longer. Recently i’ve even been having two a month. But you don’t really even have to think about it, and it lasts for 5 years
