i just got this Horrible thing taken out a few minutes ago. After a year and a half of periods every couple weeks, cramps that were worse than before and sore breasts, uncontrollable PMS the past couple weeks were my limit. i was cramping, peeing every hour so exhausted past couple days to the point where i was shaking today and the cramps were SO AWFUL i cldnt eat or anything. i called an obgyn and told them take it out. she tested me for UTI etc nothing. This thing was causing me all kinds of hell. I already feel relieved of the pressure once she took it out. i do have mild cramping but that urinating urge is gone. I guess this is not for everyone clearly.
