Experience

I would recommend the copper coil a lot!! I was on the combined pill (rigevidon) for five years before and I wanted to switch to something non hormonal. It was slightly painful to have it inserted but it only lasted about 30 seconds and the only down side is that my periods are slightly heavier than when I was on the pill! But this was expected since when on the pill it wasn’t actually a real period. It’s so much easier not having to take a pill every day and I finally feel more like myself again now that I’m totally free from artificial hormones.
