Experience

I found it very very painful to get put in. I liked having it, as my periods went back to normal whilst on the coil and i didn’t need to worry about hormones or getting pregnant. I have abdominal pain sometimes during sex so I got it taken out, but I still get that so i do not think it was because of the coil.
