  • I had mine put in 6 weeks PP. I had it removed today after having it in for a year, I HATED it. I had all sorts of symptoms form it, fatigue, mood swings, weight gain etc. Those things aren't listed as side effects but the more you look into it the more ladies you will find who have had similar issues. I figured my body would adjust to it and I finally decided I couldn't stand it any longer. On the other hand, my sister has it and her only complaint is that when she gets periods they last 2 weeks sometimes. Good luck to you if you decide to get it!
