Experience

Having the IUD inserted felt like sharp low down cramps, but once it has been inserted the pain eases off and you can’t really tell it’s there. I have had a lot less side effects with the IUD compared to others I have tried (patch, implant x2, both versions of the pill and injections). Would definitely recommend, I have even managed to loose the weight I gain whilst on the implant!
