Experience

I’m so happy with the copper coil. The insertion process wasn’t too bad at all for me and I still managed to go about my day as usual after. I have heavier periods and cramps, but not so bad that I need pain relief every time. I’m definitely more emotional than before, but this could be more because I was on the mini pill before and I felt as though that suppressed my emotions, so by coming off hormones maybe I went back to my natural state? Idk I love it, try it, it’s way easier than taking a pill everyday
