Experience

I found the insertion process much less painful than expected (I was given local anaesthetic!) and don’t have cramps/pains afterwards as I had expected to. I had no side effects until my period came, which was much heavier than usual (and felt like day 1 for the first week) and I’ve been bleeding ever since then – for 6 weeks now – as if I were on day 4/5 of my period (it’s heavier than the light spotting I had been told to expect)…
