Hear real women and men share their very real experiences with different methods of birth control.

Ellie, 27, IUD

Ellie is on her second Mirena IUD. Her first insertion was painful but worth it—she didn’t notice any side effects and loved not having a period. Ellie was better prepared for her second IUD insertion, and that time around was a breeze.

Ellie’s been in a relationship for 12 years. She and her partner agree that now isn’t the time for a pregnancy, but they like knowing that when they’re ready, the IUD removal will be quick and easy.

I love being able to say I haven’t had a period since I was 17 years old.
