Easy insertion. I had 2 and have 3 scars that are little and hardly noticeable. My problem was when I had it removed a couple of months ago the side effects were similar to pregnancy: sore breasts, nausea, tiredness. This lasted 2 months and I finally got a normal cycle now idont know what my body is doing. Turned my cycle inside out. Very annoying and confusing.
