Also,

have u had any issues with your SO feeling the strings during sex or not being able to feel your strings when you check for them?

I have it. I had typical cramping for a couple of days. Otherwise, I love it like a second child.

I had a period for 4 months, so I had it removed. As soon as I got it out, the "period" stopped within days. 

Also, a mom in my due date group got pregnant with it.

AHHHH, Yall, that is good to hear! Something positive, now do you have issues or better yet, does your SO have issues with the strings during sex?

 I had one for 6 weeks to try to regulate my heavy periods and it actually made it WORSE! I bled VERY HEAVILY for the whole 6 weeks like a pad an hour or so and walking was out of the question it would run right down the leg!  TMI i know But it was awful and i would never recommend it to anyone!  I had it removed and the bleeding stopped within a day.Good Luck.

I've had mine in for the full time! It comes out next month and a new one is going right back in! So I can honestly say mine has been great!

I got it a number of years ago before they published how exactly it worked. I had gone on to the website and everything. I got it removed once I learned it could prevent implantation of a fertilized egg. (I know, that doesn't bother a lot of people, but it bothered me.)  After I had it removed, I had less problems with keeping weight on and some pimples I had on my back went away.
