The worst experience having it inserted - fainted as cervix was clamped (which apparently isn’t uncommon). Terrible period like pains for 2 months after insertion, felt constantly faint and subpar. After a while the pain settled down but my partner was put off sex by the strings and I had absolutely no sex drive either! Eventually decided that convenient as it is having a “fixed” form of contraception, it wasn’t worth putting my body through the pain. Had it removed and was told that I have a form of PTSD from the IUD and have been a lot happier since it has been removed!!
Everything returned to normal very quickly and no side effects!
Cycle return to normal
