And when my period would come back they would be long lasting and painful… so I decided to get an IUD about 1 ½ years ago when my son was born and it was the biggest mistake. I also haven’t had my period for the past 8 months. Got a download the other day that I needed to immediately remove it to get myself healthy again.”

Yes it’s great that we’re opening up the conversation about birth control, but if you went to the doctor to have it done, you should also have the doctor take it out too, just to be safe.

Wait, she ripped it out HERSELF?
