Experience

Had ius fitted first time 2014 and had it removed in 2019 and another put in. Removal of first one and insertion of second one were very sore. I contracted. No periods but would get cramps at certain times of the month and sore breasts. Few spots too. I have had palpitations but can’t tell if that’s due to coil or anxiety.
