Experience

Very quick pain free insertion. Slightly cramping in stomach afterwards but nothing unbearable. Only main negative was that it did effect my sex drive massively and did make sex uncomfortable with vaginal dryness.

Experience after taking

Extraction was slightly more painful that insertion but not bad. Within two days however I’m now experiencing cramping sand heavy blood loss including passing blood clots.

Had a similar experience?
