Experience

Insertion was easy and completely painless. Literally didn’t feel it and there was no cramping or bleeding afterwards. I have had two children so that might have made a difference (mummies you know what I mean). I still get periods but they’re very light; I don’t need to monitor when they will come because of this and they only last a day or two (I’m spending a lot less on sanitary products). I think I gained a little weight after insertion but that could’ve been due to stopping breastfeeding too – I can’t tell. Overall I’m happy and will get a replacement after the three years. The only notable side effect is that I’ve had a few cases of thrush (had the iud 2.5 years and probably had mild thrush 4-5 times). I’ve never had thrush in my life before so I’m pretty certain that it is caused by the iud. But still it’s been fixed easily with and over counter tablet so hasn’t put me off.
