Hormonal coil (IUS)
Got my Kyleena fitted in August 2020 and I must say it was not as painful as I thought it would! Maybe the painkillers I was given had an effect, or maybe it was my amazing OB/GYN who managed to help me manage my stress, maybe it's both, but what a relief! I had cramps the next 30 minutes following the insertion and then they stopped. For the first couple months I experienced some spotting, some random (very manageable) cramps, and some breast tenderness, but once my body got used to the IUS those were all gone. I haven't experienced any specific side effect, overall very happy with my contraception at the moment!
