Experience

Very good for the first 2 years. Periods were heavy but regular and slightly more painful than before. In the last year the cramps got so painful they were unbearable and I have quit a high tolorence to pain. My periods also started spotting as well. I did end up having the coil taken out and the doctors found fibroids, I’m not sure if this had any relation to the pain and spotting.

Experience after taking

I got pregnant very quickly after I had my cool removed, within 3 months. After I got the coil removed the cramping with periods stopped straight a way.
