Experience

My periods are slightly heavier, and they go on for longer than previously. I also have sporadic painful cramps for the first few days of my period. Occasionally during sex, it can feel as if the strings are rubbed on my cervix which can be uncomfortable, but the pain stops as soon as sex stops.
