Experience

After years of using the pill, the copper coil is like a dream! It was unpleasant getting it fitted but then I haven’t had to think about it again since. I don’t get any side effects other than slightly longer periods, but I have always had long periods anyway. I always recommend it to people who have struggled with hormonal contraception!
