Experience

Once fitted the heavy bleeding stopped after 4 weeks. Now I just get headaches and a tiny amounts of blood for about 3 days once a month. Tender breasts too. It. I have now started to get cysts on my ovaries which seem to grow and then disappear. I have had 2 so far. I only discovered this as I just felt something wasn’t right- doctor organised a scan and there it was 6 cm! then on a check up scan 4 months later it had gone but a new one on the other ovary had appeared.
