Does anyone reading this have it? Did it hurt for them to put it in? How do you like it?

i had it and had a terrible reaction... had insane mood swings and acne, i gained 30 pounds in a month, i bled the entire 8 weeks I had it, i had severe depression and anxiety, i had horrible cramps the whole time too...was not for me...that said, I do know many many women who have had it for years and have had zero problems and love it.

I'm on my second one.

It doesn't hurt terribly bad, take a dose of ibuprofen about 20 minutes beforehand.

And I <3 it, haven't had any issues and I don't get that lovely monthly visit anymore!

Didn't hurt much to get in or remove. I had it for 5 years from 2004-2009, no issues at all.

I have it - for 3 years. I like it just fine. Hurt to put it in but not horrible. Uncomfortable for a few weeks but other than that its fine. I enjoy no periods.

I do. It hurt when they put it in but took only a second and quit hurting as soon as it was in place. I love mine. I've had it two years and haven't had a period in a year and a half. No complaints at all.

Didn't hurt really to do. It was hell having it though. Got it out 6 months later. Never will I ever get it again.
