Experience

So much better than the pill!! While the procedure was far from pleasant, I took painkillers and went to bed when I got home with a hot water bottle. But by the evening I was at the pub with my friends. Spotting for the first few weeks but after that periods have stopped, although I do get cramps every now and then. Love this option though because you just forget about it! No hassle whatsoever.
