Experience

I had the IUS put in after experiencing severe problems with my IUD and having to have it removed. The IUS is great, minimal periods and pain- especially in comparison to the IUD. I definitely experience some unusual mood swings now before my period which I didn’t before- but as I track my period I know when I’m due and therefore can tell why I feel insane! My period is almost next to nothing, lasting 5 days but barely any blood. Generally no complaints and am very happy with things!
