When I first had it inserted, I bled for three straight months but after that, I have not had a period since. I haven't experienced any significant weight gain or hair loss. I do have weird hot flashes and sometimes the spot where the rod is itches but other than that I am completely happy!

I have had this since November of 2008 and am absolutely going crazy on this birth control. The spotting everyday, dizziness, appetite issues and fatigue are ridiculous!
