Experience

Really good BUT towards the end of the 3 years (I’ve had two now) I kept getting bacterial vaginosis – on removal both times a little piece of tampon has been stuck to the string which was causing the recurrence. If you get this IUS please please check the strings and if you suffer from recurrent infections please please GO TO THE DOCTOR don’t just order meds online/ go to the pharmacist.

Experience after taking

I got it removed as I dislodged it using a menstrual cup, Removal was fine, painful but that’s what you expect when it moves. Since then I’ve had some spotting and cramps but nothing major.

Had a similar experience?
