Experience

I had awful cramps after having it put in which got better after a few days. But I ended up having 12 day periods (a lot of blood and pain that caused me to nearly pass out) and spotting in between. It was in place but I had to have it removed eventually, couldn’t take the pain and bleeding anymore.
