Experience

This is the most effective/least intrusive contraception I’ve used – I don’t have to think about it and I really appreciate the long-term nature of it. My periods stopped completely within four or five months of getting it in, with only very rare spotting. I cramp maybe once every three months but nothing like I do when I’m not using any contraception at all. Overall I’m a huge fan of the IUS!
