It took a long time to settle down – the first month I was in almost constant pain and almost had it taken out. It then took another 3-4 months before I was able to do any exercise without aggravating the pain and cramping. I now (touch wood!) only get pain and cramping a few days before and during my period.
Overall, I’ll stick with it as the pill didn’t agree with me and I don’t want to try the implant, but it hasn’t been easy by any means.
