Experience

I think people need to be made aware of the after care. I had a painful experience getting it fitted but I’ve actually just got back from hospital after getting it removed. I was in excruciating pain with cramps. I haven’t had pain like this in my life. I was being sick everyday and left dizzy. It did lighten periods but the pain? I’d rather a heavier period.
