Tips for Good Reviews
I had mine inserted a couple years ago right away I could feel it poking me and my boyfriend could feel it initially during intercourse poking him. I went back in to check on placement about within a month of putting it in and after that it was fine. Some bleeding within the first month, before I had heavy periods and I haven’t had my period after the first month of having it and that one was really light. Some initial cramping but all has passed. I love my iud I will definitely be getting another when the time comes.
After years of heavy periods I decided to have an ablation but my ob-gyn recommended this IUD first. It took the CRNP 3 very painful tries to insert it....had it inserted May 1, 2019 and have been bleeding and cramping ever since. After my 1 month check they said it’s normal to have bleeding up to 3 months but I’ve read it could last up to 6 months! Effective at birth control because I have no desire to have sex with spotting and sometimes clots...ew. Really wish I had the ablation.
So when I got this first inserted I was in a lot of pain. I even had to go to the ER because I was in a lot of pain. But i have never really been on birth control plus my uterus sits weirdly forward. But after two weeks the cramps finally stopped and it’s been nothing but really smooth sailing. I used to have unbelievable bad periods and craps to where it was hard to do anything the first two days. But now I don’t have periods just slight cramps right when my normal period starts but that only happens every once and awhile and some times I’ll get alittle bit of brown discharge on my period week but not every time. I really recommend this. I haven’t had any problems so far I have had it almost a year and life is a lot easier now (:
I had this IUD put in on April 2019, by June 2019 I had a stroke I am only 32 years old, healthy, non smoker and not over weight. The doctors will not say it's the IUD that caused the stroke but they also will not say it didn't. It's just weird that I had a stroke almost 6 weeks after getting the Liletta, they suggested I get the paragard (copper IUD) and take out the Liletta to avoid any future problems.
I got it places 09/29/2017, it has been hell. I’m randomly yucky down there, discolored discharge, chunky brown/red ‘blood’, it smelled, wasn’t a period, and was something I’ve never seen come out of me. I always have lower back pain, I’m constantly having pain on my uterus that I’m chalking up to ovarian cysts (??). And sometimes the cramps/pain is too much that I can’t move or walk and will spend hours in bed
Had this put in a month ago. The insertion was extremely painful for me. I've heard other say it was nothing but I did not have that experience. Two weeks after having it put in I got my period (shouldn't have gotten it for another two weeks). It was a light period and I could just use panty liners with it. But thing is, I kept on bleeding. I've been bleeding for two weeks now. And I've had cramps along with it the past two weeks. I'm hoping my body adjusts and the bleeding and cramping stops. I couldn't tell you if I'd get it again yet. Wish I would've just had my husband get snipped.
After years of heavy uncomfortable periods I finally decided to try an IUD. I had Liletta inserted in mid March, 3/15/2019 I've had it in for 2 months now and I'm STILL BLEEDING! The insertion was pretty painful. I had severe cramping and pelvic pain and bleeding for the first month, I almost caved to have them take it out. But after a month I got my period, which was just A LOT of bleeding on top of the constant month long bleeding. After that it lightened up to light/medium spotting, still constant every day though. The cramping and pelvic pain are gone thank God. But this constant spotting for 2 months is just downright irritating and exhausting. I'm hoping my body adjusts soon, but If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't get the IUD.
I had this IUD place in on 3/30/2019 and I had severe cramping and bleeding for the first day but stopped. Started having sharp pains in my right abdomen and it’s been on and off since then up till now. Had my period for 2 weeks straight. Having bad acne problems and once in a while mood swings
LIletta has been wonderful for me. Although insertion was slightly painful, I’m very pleased with having no more periods. The doctor has to dilate your cervix so the pain is similar to a contraction. The only side effect I can think of is breast tenderness. Before the IUD I was taking hormones, had heavy bleeding, my doctor thought this may be a good decision and it was. I can’t have kids anymore so I didn’t have this for that reason. I’m 44, I’ve dealt with heavy bleeding for 5 years. Now I’m free
I have had it inside for about 3 weeks now after being 6 weeks PP with my 2nd baby. The insertion was just uncomfortable and afterwards I felt like I could feel it. After taking a couple steps I didn’t feel it anymore. Dr. did say I bled when he put it in but I was still bleeding from PP anyway. I continued to bleed up until now. It’s been about 3 weeks since then and my bleeding has stopped. I did have about 2-3 days about a week ago where I felt like I was on my period. All the bleeding had been super light until those 2/3 days where it was still light but got a little more bleeding (but still very, very light). During those 2/3 days were the only time I felt I had symptoms of having a period. Other then that it’s been going good so far. I hope that it will continue! You have to give your body time to adjust and you may have to do a little suffering but you have to give it time. Good luck!!!!
I have had the Liletta for about 3 months. The insertion only felt crampy for a moment and off and on for that day. Ibuprofen helped. I have had very light to no bleeding, and almost no period at all. I took this to help with heavy periods. I had some moderate lower back pain at the time I would h a very had my period but once again, taking a couple Advil helped. I would recommend trying this, I wish I did earlier!
I have loved the Liletta! i had it inserted 6 months ago and in the first weeks it was slightly annoying with occasional pains and spotting but i stuck it out. Now i have a extremely light, regular period and have had no side effects. Would highly recommend it!!!!
The insertion was not as painful as stories led me to believe. I had minor on and off cramping for about 2 weeks and since them I've been fine. I still get some period cramps/breast tenderness but I don't actually get my period, just minor spotting. I am writing on my 2 year insertion anniversary, and it has worked great!
It didn’t hurt really at all going in. When he went to cut my strings I think he bumped the clamp holding my cervix bc it was a unexpected pain and that was honestly the worst. Wasn’t bad at all! I watch all these YouTube videos and just knew it would hurt. But nope! I was 8 wks pp and have had three kids. But it was by far the easiest. I had slight cramping off and on the rest of the day and like 2 small clots that day and it’s now the next day and I’m still bleeding but VERY VERY light. So far I highly recommend!
I have had this I'd for about a year and a half with great news, NO MORE PERIODS! But I still have cramping,discomfort, breathing tenderness, lactation and have gained 20 lbs since insertion! Ugh very frustrating
I don't recommend this IUD got it inserted late oct 2019 and it's been nothing but problems. Non stop cramps without a period, severe migraines, constant low adominal pain. I had the mirena for 4 years prior to this and it never gave me any problems. Mother of 1. I'm having it removed asap. Never again, just praying it didn't cause any unknown serious issues. I highly regret my decision with liletta.
I was so scared to get this after the reviews but I can NOT have any more babies. I went in to my doctors office and was terrified. I was Scared for nothing! I literally Barely even felt anything while he was doing the whole thing (it only took him 7 minutes). He did tell me I would have some cramping and he gave me a midol before he started. I had Very light cramps for maybe 2/3 hours afterwards. I did have a little bleeding but it faded out fast after a day or two. I breastfeed and it has not messed with my supply at all and I have actually lost weight on this product. I have Not experienced any head aches and I only Have a period for 1/2 days occasionally and it’s very very light. I love My liletta and I’m so glad that I made this decision.
I have put on 2 pounds a month while taking this birth control. I am tired of people asking if I'm pregnant because I have severe abdominal bloating and I was diagnosed with liver damage and I don't even drink.... which is also a side effect not mentioned...
I have had the IUD for a year and a half now. Next Wednesday I will be having it removed. I got Liletta because it was low hormones and safe for women who had never had any children. It has low hormones. I am extremely sensitive to hormones. I have been on multiple types of contraception since I was 12 yrs. Old. I've been on yaz, yazmine, the path, the o-ring, the nexplanon (implant in your arm, and multiple oral contraceptives. What the IUD is supposed to do does it perfectly. Almost. I have no periods. Stopped having them when I got the IUD which getting it was one of the most painful experiences of my life. She had to measure my uterus which she had to do twice because my uterus sits in back so she couldn't get the best reading and inserted the IUD which so painful. I was uncomfortable and cramping for the next few days after about a month I was still in pain so I went back to have a vagina sonogram. Everything looked great. Soon my entire personality changed. Angry all the time. In pain all the time. Tender breasts and after a while I began to lactate. My doctor's couldn't figure out why but said my milk was totally normal. About a little over a year of having it I was constant
I had Liletta inserted at my 6 week postpartum appointment. I was not told to take Advil beforehand and while insertion wasn't super pleasant it wasn't really painful and really quick. I had some bleeding and cramping the day of insertion and some bleeding the day afterwards. I have only had it inserted for about a week now and I am having continuous headaches but hope they will go away after I adjust. I'll tough it out for another week or 2 before I contemplate removing it.
