Experience

Overall, the IUS is fantastic! I’ve never been able to feel mine so you have to trust it is in the right place, but I love not having to take a pill every day or worry about it for 5 years. My period stopped completely for the first year and then came back somewhat irregular or extremely light. (Can free bleed it is that light)
