Experience

The insertion was awful, extremely painful and I nearly passed out. But after that, everything has been great after the first couple of months of heavy periods (and one spell of extreme leg aches and nausea.) Other than that, it’s great, you don’t have to think about it and it’s long lasting and reliable.
