Experience

Only had this for a few months so can’t really speak to all the side effects people mention but my fitting was fine. My dr was very friendly and also used the numbing gel first, so I couldn’t feel any pain. I had mild period cramps for a few hours after, but took Ibruprofen before and after so it wasn’t that significant. Hopefully not tmi noticed slightly more discharge since but that’s the only change so far. It gets a bad rep, but if you want something you can forget about and no added hormones, I’d recommend.
