For Birth Control “I had this IUD put in July of 2017 at 6 weeks postpartum, so my cervix was still a little open. I barely had any pain at all during insertion. I went home and had moderate cramping, and I bled for 2 weeks. I haven’t had a period since which I love. I do get nauseous ALL the time and my sex drive is non existent. I have vaginal dryness and feel angry a lot of the time. Now recently I started getting back pains and cramping a lot more. I’m on the fence weather or not I want to get this IUD removed. I’m currently not sexually active, but I love not having a period.”

For Birth Control “I have to say this has been the best birth control I have had. A couple of years ago after I had my first child, I chose to get the copper IUD and had a horrible experience (horrible cramping and heavy bleeding for 4 months) so I was nervous giving an IUD another try. Before the liletta, I was on a pill for about a year that was causing my acne to flare up and I was constantly bloated. After the liletta insertion, within a week my bloating had disappeared and within a month my acne was almost completely gone. The insertion was uncomfortable, but a couple of Advil helped ease the pain. There was spotting for the first two months but it wasn’t enough to warrant anything other than a panty liner. My breasts were very tender and sore for the first month, but subsided fairly quickly. I have had it in about 5 months and love it. My periods are super light and I have had no issues with weight gain or acne. Sex isn’t uncomfortable and my boyfriend hardly ever feels it.”

For Birth Control “Hey, I spotted on the Lilletta for 6 months, I still spot after sex now and I think now my sex drive has gone way down. I feel dry and uncomfortable. My weight has also gone way up since May of 2016 when I had it placed and while my activity levels are a little less than usual, my food habits are the same (perhaps better) but I’ve gained 30 pounds and it’s been impossible to lose that weight. I’ve been beating up myself about it but I think it’s not me, because I’ve always exercised intermittently (2-3 times/week). I also feel depressed and have little to no drive. I find small tasks extremely difficult and have very low confidence. I’m taking the Lilletta out in a week or so and I’ll update this if I see that this is what has been causing it. I hope it’s not because of this I have not had periods for the last 1.5 years (I used to get very painful periods) and it’s been a welcome relief.”

For Birth Control “Ok so I got the liletta Oct 2016 procedure took maybe 10 min the pain was pretty bad. I bled 4 months straight and the strings were literally one inch from being outside of my body I had them trimmed. I was told after 6 months my period should stop well they are lighter but haven’t stopped and last between 10-12 days. I have to wear panty liners all day everyday bc I have a constant clear watery discharge (no stds) my ob said it is my body getting rid of all the extra hormones. But it’s so irritating. Sex is fine no pain but my husband says he gets poked sometimes. I haven’t had it removed yet bc I haven’t gotten pregnant thank god. But I have had a problem I’m not sure if its related to the BC or not but since about a month after getting it I have had severe neck pain and about 6 months ago every thing above my waist went numb and has been numb since. I see a neurologist next month so hopefully ill find out if it has anything to do with my liletta.”

For Birth Control “Hello everyone, I just finished having my Liletta removed after two years in. I originally got this IUD to help with my heavy flow which consisted of 8-12 days long. After insertion, I bled/spotted for about 6months. After that my period would come for about 3 days and would only need to wear panty liners. However, my last year my period was all over the place and I began to feel some side effects. For example: lethargy, spotting, cramps, Breast swelling, nipple tenderness, vaginal dryness, mood swings, and weight gain. My period was also impossible to track, if I could guess I would say I had a period of 3-4 days twice a month at random times. I removed it this week and I feel better, I lost 3lbs so far, my sore breast and nipples are gone, and most importantly I feel happy.”

For Birth Control “I got Liletta almost 2 months ago. I do have 2 children already, early 30’s, obese. First experienced a really annoying spotting for about 1.5 months. Now it has stopped. I am hoping its not related to pregnancy. If I won’t get my period for another week, will probably take a pregnancy test. Its been a good experience once the bad cramping stopped. A bit of a weight gain but I think its manageable. I just have a problem with eating right.”
