I have to start by saying that having a Jaydess fitted for 3 years is a dream. However to be noted, 3 months in I am experiencing a few side effects. These initially included very painful cramps, which would wake me up in the middle of the night and felt like I was being ripped inside and made me cry. This eventually stopped after 2 weeks. There was also 6 weeks of spotting. Ultimately, the biggest issue so far has been the hormonal effects. Till then, I’d been lucky and my hormones had been pretty steady throughout my cycles. My sex drive would peak at certain moments (during my period and ovulation) but I never experienced mood swings. This suddenly changed with Jaydess. I feel irritable during my period, but especially extremely sensitive and emotional which is a real shock for me. I’m sticking through it and giving it another month but in my opinion, suffering through that (and having my loved ones bare the brunt of it too) isn’t worth it on the long run.
