Experience

The insertion was uncomfortable, but after a previous negative experience inserting the CuIUD they used local anaesthetic and a smaller IUS. It took a couple of days for the insertion cramps to finish, but since then I love it. I have much lighter periods, occasional cramps (but I never used to get cramps), but no other side effects and it’s so great to not have to think about my contraception. When my kyleena expires I will 100% be getting it replaced.
