Experience

Had the coil for just over 18 months, had regular periods but they were extremely heavy and painful. Then I was one of apparently very few who managed to get pregnant, despite checking almost every month that it was still in place etc. I’ve heard many stories of people getting pregnant whilst using it & the pain just wasn’t worth it.
