Experience

The doctor who inserted my IUD explained that it would take 3 - 6 months for my body to get used to the effects but I couldn't even wait the minimum before I had it removed. I bled from the moment it was inserted to the moment it was removed. My moods were out of control and I found myself enraged by things that typically would not bother me. I felt like a completely different person and I couldn't stand it. Insertion was pain free only due to the fact that I was under anesthesia.

Experience after taking

Having it removed was relatively pain free and quick. My mind and body did a complete 180 and felt normal in no time afterwards
