Experience

Best contraception I’ve ever used. A little cramping on insertion. Had it removed to try for baby, got pregnant around 3 months post removal. Removal a bit uncomfortable, similar to cervical smear (I appreciate cervical smears are more than uncomfortable for some women). Insertion and removal took about 3 mins each.
