Experience

I had this fitted for just over 6 months. I’m about to have it removed as my periods are longer and more painful. Sex is also painful in certain positions which was never an issue previous to the IUD insertion. Its great as you don’t have to think about it and there’s no hormones! Insertion was unpleasant but lasted minimal time.
