Experience

Hellish having it put in and removed both times. It really hurt me and made me bleed for a week afterwards with bad cramps. Periods lighter but same length. Same cramps as before and mood swings. Personally dont think it caused weight gain. Good for its purpose but I couldn’t experience another insertion.
