Experience

The copper coil is a brilliant contraception. There are zero hormones released and after 15 plus years of being on various pills, it was so nice after having my 2 children to eventually have a contraction method with no hormones. For some reason the doctors are reluctant to fit them and you have to jump through a few hoops to persuade them, but the fitting was no worse than having a smear test and after having children you kind of don’t care who looks down there anymore! Lol I would highly recommend a copper coil!
