Quoting Sarah_Barah:" Does it effect you at all and give you bad side effects? It gives me horrible cramps and I cannot lose ... [snip!] ... have to pay to get it removed. Im in such a rut. I think I rather use condoms and lose weight instead of being a fat piggy."
It's one of those preference things ... some hate it and swear they will never go there again others liked it .
I had it for 5 years ... it does settle but I did find month after month I swore i was pregnant it mimics the same symptoms. alot of ppl have had trouble conceiving after removal but again its different for everyone .
I will get it again after my son is born I found after 6mths everything settled and was extremely reliable over the years with no bleeding whats so ever each month after six mths . I didn't get weight gain but headaches were sometimes an issue . I have had Implanon & other IUD and of course the pill ( terrible at taking tablets .
