Experience

Initially insertion was a bit scary and hurt a bit, but the limited side effects since and the complete loss of my period completely makes it worth it. My periods were so severe that I couldn’t go into school/college on my heaviest days, and made me anaemic from the loss of blood, now I’m all good ?
