Experience

My IUS changed my life. I previously had very heavy periods, even when on the pill, and now have none at all and none of the horrors that come with them. But even better than that, I don’t have constantly fluctuating hormones and therefore mood swings and other changes that I found came hand in hand with that. It was initially painful to have inserted but absolutely worth it.
