Experience

I was previously using the hormonal implant which drastically altered my mood and caused weight gain. As soon as I swapped to the copper coil, my mood changed and my periods became regular again. I do have more cramping and slightly heavier periods, but still a significant improvement from hormonal contraception methods.
