Experience

Overall the copper coil has been useful for me as I don’t react well to synthetic hormones (they cause weight and mood changes etc). I feel it was a good long term option for me, but has had some complications with the strings of the coil and pain during sex, which is a big fault. It’s better than the other options for me as hormone free, but has been far from simple.
