Experience

After the first few months of having it inserted, my periods would come but they only lasted a couple of days and were light. There was brown discharge but that was old blood. Since then my periods have stopped completely. My left arm was sensitive for like a week but after that it healed fine and I’ve had no problems. The only thing which caused me pain during the small procedure was the local anaesthetic to numb the upper arm. Genuine experience with it has been good.
