Experience

I love it! Had my first copper coil before I had my first daughter. Fitting was uncomfortable and then 24 hours of very bad cramps – after that no issues. Slightly heavier periods for the first 3 or 4 months then much the same. Second copper coil when my youngest daughter was about 6 months old. Painless going in and no problems since. In for 10 years. Bloody brilliant!
