Experience

Over time the cramps have lessened but they were really bad (couldn’t go to work) for the first 2 days after having the IUD put in and this wasn’t something I was told to expect. I’ve had the IUD around 4 months and my periods are almost regular again but we’re quite irregular for the first 2-3 months with prolonged light bleeding. It’s helped with the physical symptoms of PMS and I don’t get as bloated or get sore breasts anymore. I don’t think it’s helped much with the emotional PMS symptoms these are pretty much the same.
