Experience

Moderately painful insertion but definitely worth it for now almost pain-free periods and peace of mind that I’m using a very effective form of contraception. So far I have had spotting for about 3 weeks a month which is a slight inconvenience but hopefully this will decrease. I have been using a menstrual cup with no issues.
