Experience

It’s different for everyone but for me, I found that my periods were very irregular and very severe cramps with every cycle which defeated the purpose of getting it all together. However, I do believe that I should give my body more of a chance to get used to it before I recommend to others if or if not they should get one. Other symptoms I found which appeared often as opposed to before I had my IUD inserted are bloating, acne, back pain, fatigue, and insomnia.
