Experience

I’ve had my Jaydess IUS for 2 years, It definitely has it’s advantages, such as being able to not worry about taking contraception or getting something changed every couple of months, I love that. When I don’t have the negative side effects, I do think it’s one of the better forms of contraception. HOWEVER, I literally get vaginal dryness all of the time, which effects my sex life and can course a lot of discomfort. I also miss having regular bleeds, I feel like it always gives you peace of mind and keeps you in tune with your body. At the start I had a light bleed for around 3 days and then slowly it’s disappeared however even without a “period” I still often suffer from menstrual cramping and back pain. I think my experience is probably not that common but I think vaginal dryness and discomfort from a hormonal IUS is often not touched upon.
