I got it in june and still have it. I has not had a period in three years because of hormonal bc and pregnancy. Their theory is i was producing eggs but not shedding them. Four days after i got the iud the floodgates opened : /
I've only had about a month of no bleeding since june. Though i've been period free like 10 days and i'm starting to get my hopes up it'll be a whole three weeks til i have a period like normal people!! Lol i say that but i'm breaking out and PMSing so we'll see. I still would not choose anything else. (even though i've ruined a lot of underwear :-( )semi- permanent and hormone free is my only safe option lol
thanks. i got mine in while i was on my period so i havent had my offical 1st one. do you still have yours? was the bleeding too much?
Oh yes m'am. And my doc okayed it as normal. Basically your body will always be trying to rid itself of the intruder, kwim?
I have had mine for over 6 months, i was very scared because i had heard horror stories about bleeding too much, crazy cramps and etc...but i got it anyways, and its been great. I've had no bleeding/spotting between periods, minor cramps, and my flow has been increased but like 10%, i guess im one of the lucky ones. Just keep checking for it every month after your period stops :)
