PLEASE PLEASE Do Not Get this IUD! I had mine removed yesterday with complications. So not only did i have horrile side effects on this drug, but removal was difficult. I personally think this thing attacks all parts of your body, physically and emotionally. Unfortunatly this type of birth control is simply not worth it. I think a lot of doctors push for it because it is expensive compared to most other forms of birth control. The doctors fail to tell you all of the side effects. Save yourself from this iud. It is not worth it!! Good Luck!
