I had it for a couple years with no issue aside from I do think I gained a bit of weight due to it. Not a lot, but sort of like constant bloating. When I had it removed, those 5-7 pounds disappeared immediately with no effort. But nice light periods, no pain, and it didn't affect my fertility, as I'm now 18 weeks pregnant!
I got it in September after my twins were born. No pain, no side effects. I love it. I've had a period every month, but my OB said it could take a few months for my periods to stop. Unless I'm feeling for the strings, I don't even know it's there.
Don't do it. For me yes the periods stopped but i had no sex drive & even when i did I bleed during sex & would totally gross my boyfriend. I wouldn't recommend it plus there are way too many lawsuits out for it.
