Experience

I suffered cramps all month long that got more intense 5 days before and after my period. Periods were very heavy, I experienced flooding and they lasted around 10 days. I lost my sex drive completely and often felt angry. Since removal (I’m now on mini pill) I have regained my sex drive and the pain has eased.
