  • I've had mine for almost three years and I LOVE IT!!!! No periods for the first two years but now I'm starting to get really light ones again. I didn't have any pain or discomfort or bleeding when I first had it placed. I would ask your Dr. again. The only thing that makes me ever know it's there is when my Hubby tells me he felt it poking him...lol...
