Experience

Initial insertion was probably one of the most painful experiences I’ve had. However it didn’t last very long so the cost of being in pain for a day didn’t seem that bad to not have to worry about the ius for a max of 5 years. Unfortunately I was deemed “one of the unlucky ones” to not have their periods stop altogether. Now I just experience a lighter period but it’s very irregular.
