Experience

Having my first and second IUS inserted was agonising for me (I have a tilted cervix and twisted “canal”). However on my second insertion they offered me anaesthetic which helped. Make sure to ask for it!! I had some issues in the first 6 months. Bad cramps and contractions. However from 7 months to 5 years it’s been wonderful. Very light periods, no mood swings/hormonal issues.
