Experience

Got the copper coil fitted so I could stop worrying about taking the pill, it has increased my anxiety greatly, along with unbearable cramping to the point where I cannot leave bed all day for 4 days, I also get mild cramping outside of my period regularly. Overall it has been the worst decision I have ever made!! Currently waiting to get it removed.
