    I have had this little torture device for nearly two years. Since inserted my hair has been falling out in handfuls, I've got bad acne, my migraines have flaired up (2 a week as opposed to 1 every few months before), I've had a 2 year long sinus infection (yes this is one of the relatively unheard of side effects), absolutely no libido, serious moodswings, vertigo, I bleed for 5 days ever ...
