Experience

I have very mixed feelings about this IUD. The insertion hurt like hell, I was spotting a whole month while experiencing some cramps. Then my period stopped for 4 months, but after this time it came back. However, I am in severe pain for approx. 5 days every month now. It is great, that you dont have to remember anything, but I’m not sure, if it is for me since the cramps are really bad (I hadn’t that bad cramps before). Also, I was at my doctor multiple times and everything seems normal.
