Experience

Although my periods can be irregular and during the first 6 months I would get extremely bad stomach and back pains, I think my body is now getting used to the coil and periods feel more manageable. I can still get bad pain but it is less frequent. I also enjoy not having to worry about taking a pill regularly. In addition the pill did not work well for me in terms of my mood so this has been a good switch.
