Experience

I found the fitting to be ok. The post pain was unbearable lasting for around 4 hours and then was just sensitive the rest of that day. My periods came back regularly like clockwork but with severe cramping which I’m finding to be unbearable. The pain is so bad I cannot talk and it goes through my whole body. The benefits of not having hormones do not outweigh the pain.
