  • A friend of mine did it, about 3 months ago. She had some cramping for about 4-5 days with it and no problems with it since, but she just recently go it too, so side effects havent really had time to show up yet either.

  • I looked in to it. But it makes me very nervous... they are claiming there is NO side effects beyond some minor cramps... I don't see how that is even possible. You can not insert foreign objects in to the body and then never have consequences... What if your body rejects it? What if you end up with an infection?? What if your body doesn't form a solid seal around them? There has to be some scar tissue, how will your body react to this blockage years from now?? I think they are still to new and there are to many unknowns yet...

  • I dont think I would trust to mess with the laws of mother nature to do anything that would be permanent. I would be fearful of something that long lasting.
