Who here has one and would be willing to share your experience with it? I recently dumped hormonal birth control after a huge load of unpleasant side effects (ridiculous amount of bloating, sleep problems, dead libido, increased aggression/anger...basically a total personality change) on a few different pills over the course of a year, but I am certain I do not want children anytime within the next 5-7 years.

If you have one, was the insertion really painful? Are you allowed to take anything for pain? How was the recovery? Any side effects with your periods now? Are you overall happy with it?
