  • i had mine put in 6 mths after my son was born in 2007. i loved it i just recently got it removed because were TTC. it hurts a little going in but just take a motrin or tylonel before ur appt and you dont feel anything when they take it out. i loved mine and after our next baby im getting it put back in.

  • I got it in December 09. The first 2 months were great then last month I started getting pregnancy symptoms, I'm so angry, bad stomach pains, spotting and when I have sex it feels like it's stabbing my uterus. Not to mention, I'm losing about 2-3 handfulls of hair daily. I have an ultrasound to check its placement (I still feel the strings) or see if I have a tubal then depending on that I get it taken out. It hurt like hell getting it put in, I'm scared to have it taken out.
    I don't reccomend it but everyone reacts different to things. I've never done well with hormones so that could explain most of my symptoms.
