Experience

Nothing but issues with the IUD. Was the most horrific experience ever having it inserted and was nothing but terrible for the 4 months I put up with it. Acne on my face, back and chest, terrible mood all the time, tired, lethargic, heavy and irregular bleeding. Have had it removed and will go back on the pill
