I love, love, love it. I have had it for around 4-5 months now. I had some menstrual-type cramping when it was inserted, but I took Ibuprofen and didn't have any more cramping after that. I'm bfing and the only period I've had since having it inserted was lighter and less painful than normal.
I've got the copper one as well. My periods are heavier than they were but I was on the patch so that made my periods super light. I also don't have any cramps. The 5 year one has some hormones in it which is why it can make your periods lighter.
I got it put it in at my 6 week PP appointment. It was a little uncomfortable getting it inserted but not too bad really. I would do it again!!
Over all, I love it!! It's so much easier than having to worry about taking pills, messing with a patch, ect.
i have the copper and for me the day i got it done i felt pinching but went in the next days they cut the lines and its been great ever since i get my period every other month and i havn't noticed any heavy bleeding or cramps.
as far as the other b/c i don't do goo dwith hormones so this is teh best plus its good for 10 years
