Experience

Had the coil after my second pregnancy. The installation was very painful. The first few months everything was fine – but only because my periods had not returned eat after pregnancy. However, when they returned, it was constant and rather heavy bleeding. I had to have the coil removed, and after stopping breastfeeding returned on a combined pill, which stopped the bleeding.
