Experience

*Best decision I have ever made!* I wish I had got the coil sooner. I am 27 and have been on the pill for years. It made me hormonal and changed my personality. The coil has helped me get back to being the “normal” happy self, hormone free. Don’t be put off by the coil horror stories. This non-hormonal contraception has positively impacted my life. I feel so safe and in control of my fertility. The insertion process isn’t nice, but it’s over so quickly, and the worst part is a 7/10 pain that lasts about 30seconds. Then mild cramps , 3/10 pain for the following few day’s while it settles. Would 100% recommend.
