Experience

I’ve been using a copper coil now for 2 years, i used to have very painful periods already which hasn’t changed. when it was inserted i was in pain for a good 10 days. i had the worst cramps ever, i felt like i was going to throw up all the time. Now two years down the line and I’m glad i powered through those 10 days, even if it was the most excruciating pain I’ve ever felt
