I hate this thing! I feel like crap all the time. I have had it in for 7 months and I have gained 35lbs and am still gaining weight. I eat super healthy and work out at least once a day. I do not recommend this to anyone! I am getting it taken out on the 15th.

The first 2 months were great. I had no period as I was nursing. However, the last 4 months have been completely crappy. My periods last anywhere from 1-4 weeks with manybe a 1 week reprieve in between...if I'm lucky. I'm moody and irritable and am interested in another method!
