Experience

I would definitely recommend. I have actually now had two IUDs back-to-back; after my first one came to the end of its life it was no question to me to continue with this contraceptive type and get it replaced. I don’t have periods anymore which is great and I have no mood-related side effects either. The insertion may put some people off but it’s over quite quickly and then you don’t have to worry about a thing for 5 years! I did have some cramping and bleeding after the insertion of my first one (not the subsequent one) but after that there have been no problems at all.
