Experience

I started using the IUD right after I had my son, and I lived very happy with it for the next 4 years, I removed it because it’s life cycle was over and didn’t ask to have another because I was planning to have another child, but I highly recommend this method to everyone who desires to just forget about contraception. One medical appointment, and that’s it!

Experience after taking

I noted I gained weight after a few months I stopped using the IUD but I can’t think it was problematic as this was a minor difference and I can’t tell for sure it was caused by the IUD removal.

Had a similar experience?
