Experience

I kept bleeding for the entire 6 months until I finally took it out. Usually for the duration of a month I was getting my period for 2-3 weeks in total, with some breaks in between. It wasn’t spotting, it felt like actual periods with painful cramps and I had to wear tampons non stop. The removal was very bad, it had moved and it took forever for the GP to find it/get it out. I needed stiches and I stl have a nasty scar
