Experience

After 10+ years on various pills, I opted for the copper coil because I wanted to be free of hormones and honestly no looking back. My periods, though more painful and accompanied by a hormonal spot or 2, are as regular as clockwork. And I feel like myself again, like a cloud had been lifted. I feel 100% secure and confident in its efficacy. My partner can feel the strings, but only in certain positions and usually at a certain time in my cycle.
