Hi I am a married woman who is currently taking OCP, Yasmin. I’ve already on my 2nd month of taking this OCP. However I am thinking of using IUCD as contraception as I am starting to feel side effects of Yasmin ie: mood swings and breast pain. I’d like to know the side effects of IUCD and whether it is painful when inserting it. Thanks
