Experience

The fitting was the most painful thing ever. Took multiple attempts to get it fitted. The first 24 hours after were also really painful with the worst cramps ever. For the first 2 months I had constant back pain/Cramps but they’re beginning to ease off. My first real period was also a lot heavier then previous ones but I had come from the combined pill so that was probably be related. But a heavier period is worth it for no emotional side effects. First month took time getting used to it but it seems ok now
