Experience

Terrible. Awful. Never again! From going from having very light periods that lasted 3 days, this caused me such heavy periods. Bleeding through tampons in an hour (super +)! The cramps as well made me feel physically sick it hurt so bad. I was told these would settle down so I tried to stick it out until then, a year later gave up it never did. Awful experience!
