I had quite a bit of pain having it inserted but I think that may be from the scar tissue I have from giving birth. I had some mild cramps for a day or so, I bled for 3-4 days, a bit of bloating, then nothing. After a week I felt great. I can't find my stings; however, I did ask them to cut them short for my husbands sake. I will have them check that when I go for my check up. I haven't gained any weight (cross my fingers). If you decide to use this, I would encourage you to take motrin before hand.
