‘Other people, be informed from my errors! No doubt get checked up sooner than your IUD appointment for those who haven’t already.’
The ground of this web page leads us again into the existing as a pleasant Physician holds up a speculum.

‘My IUD journey was once so definitely worth the ache. It was once so freeing to push myself out of my convenience zone, and simply opt for it. It felt like the beginning of a brand new adventure, being extra aware of my frame’s wishes and taking good care of it myself.’
