Experience

The insertion is not as bad as I was expecting, like an large injection, but with local anaesthetic. Getting it changed was a whole other thing, as it’s been in for 3 years so requires a bit of cutting and pulling which can be painful. The day to day though I found great, I had no issues with my mood or cramping any more than normal and although my period doesn’t always come at the same time each month, it tends to be lighter now
