Experience

Decided to switch from the pill to copper coil because of how the pill had been affecting my moods and wanted a hormome-free alternative. Had strong cramps on the day it was inserted and maybe for one or two of my next periods after, but my cycle returned to normal quickly, cramps are no worse than they were during the pill and periods didn’t get heavier. It’s been 7 months now and no regrets. Insertion is uncomfortable but it’s over quickly and it’s so worth it in the long term.
