Experience

Periods are so much easier, lighter, shorter, with my second coil now they’ve almost stopped, just a bit of spotting. Putting it in was easy, fast, and only hurt very briefly. Afterwards normal period cramps for a couple hours, but nothing bad. Super happy with it, lowest dose of hormones, no pills, no forgetting, no problems with other meds (e.g. antibiotics etc). Would highly recommend
