as the title says really!! is it any good? are your cycles regular with it in? how long can it stay in for? does it hurt having it put in?

I had it pre-L I hardly got any periods, it didn't hurt getting in or out. Think that you can lose sex drive with it.

Oh god don't say that, mine is awful anyhow!! My progetrogen is low so the hospital suggested I have it fitted for a while to see if it helps. I cannot take the pill anymore so this is the only real solution

I've had a number of them over the last 10 years. The first couple before C weren't good to have put in (nearly passed out), but the two since haven't been a problem at all - never a problem having them taken out.
Periods are so much lighter - initial reason to have one was my heavy periods, and now they're just a bit of spotting, and more regular than without. There is a chance of lack of sex drive, and also increase in appetite, but I've not really had too much of a problem with either.
They can be in for up to 5 years, although I've never had one in for that long for various reasons.

I have it. I had it before B, and had another one 6 weeks after he was born. I think they're great. The first one hurt to put in, but I think that's because I hadn't had a baby yet as I didn't even notice the second one being fitted!! On the first one I didn't really have periods occasional spotting. I've had some light bleeding with this one, but I think it's still settling down. You can have them for five years.
