Experience

Worst pain I have ever experienced during insertion, hurt for weeks afterward. Prior to insertion my periods were never really heavy or painful. I had spotting for the 6 weeks afterward but now I have no period. Not sure if the weight gain had anything to do with it, might have just been the quarantine due to COVID. Occasional cramps but never any bleeding.
