Experience

The process of getting the iud was relatively painless aside from light cramping, and was really quick. I was really moody the first couple of weeks into it but that’s kinda subsided now, I think it was just my initial reaction to the hormones. Haven’t experienced a lot of symptoms from it, there was a bit of cramping maybe the first week after getting it. I’ve been spotting since I’ve gotten it and haven’t had a regular period.
