  • I will start by wishing you luck. I had one and it came out of place. Resulting in my final pregnacy. I wouldn't take nothing for him though.

  • I have it & i love it. Just prepare yourself for the initial bleeding that can last for weeks. BUT, it's so worth it! My periods are so light & easy now. I barely even have one.

    If you have a good Dr., it should be all good.

    It did not hurt me at all either when they put it in. My Dr. told me i could take some advil before hand & i did. I did not feel a thing when she put it in. BUT, she is a miracle.....she is just an amazing Dr.

  • i have pco and i hardly ever get a period to begin with. i am ok with the initial bleeding.... without hormones? i am still breastfeeding my son and dont want to take anything that can affect him through the milk... i have heard some horror stories too. i have tried so many pills and they all make me sick.
