 3  Pregnant prevention Nausea, fatigue, wacky periods, F 31 10 months

 3  Pregnancy prevention The insertion was horrible, I was definitely not expecting it to hurt at all by the time it was over I was drenched in sweat and experienced horrible cramping for the next 2 days. For about the first three months I would cramp just about everyday and took so much ibuprofen. I also got so much acne. I noticed my pms symptoms were very different I was very irritable, sometimes sad, sometimes fine but throughout the duration of the year I experienced cramping 24/7, acne and for the last month or two I was very anxious and sad ultimately making my decision to get it removed, removal was painless barely felt a thing. Before the iud my period was about 3-4 days very light no cramps and no mood swings or crazy pms symptoms. I let it play out for about a year but I could tell these changes were caused by the skyla. Prevented pregnancy but I didn't want to deal with the symptoms that came with it anymore. My gyno recommended the ortho cyclin so I will be trying that. F 19 1 years

 2  Birth Control Constant spotting and bleeding, extreme cramping in the night time, random bloating. Overall would not do again. Getting it inserted wasn't painful but the cramps for the day of and after had me bedridden. I got it removed after 2 months because I would bleed every single day and went through so many tampons. It was basically a 2 month long period. I also never had menstrual cramps until I had Skyla. Bloating would be so bad I looked pregnant even though I clearly was not. F 21 2 months

SKYLA  (LEVONORGESTREL):  This product is a small, flexible device that is placed in the womb (uterus) to prevent pregnancy. It is used by women who want to use a reversible birth control method that works for a long time (up to 3 years). The device slowly releases a hormone (levonorgestrel) that is similar to a hormone that women normally make. This device helps prevent pregnancy by making cervical fluid thicker, interfering with sperm movement, and reducing sperm survival to prevent sperm from reaching an egg (fertilization). It also changes the lining of the uterus (womb) to prevent attachment of a fertilized egg. If a fertilized egg does not attach to the uterus, it passes out of the body. This device may also stop the release of an egg from your ovary (ovulation), but this is not the way it works in most women. Using this product does not protect you or your partner against sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
