Experience

I have been on hormonal contraception since I was a teenager and I just wanted to see what ‘I’ Was like without it. If the things that affect me such as anxiety, tiredness etc were due to hormones. I am so happy with this copper coil. I feel like whatever if going on with me is me and not something caused by introduced hormones. Side effect are few if any and I can just forget about it. Periods were heavier at first than the pill but only the same as they were before I used contraception and they have settled down. I can’t recommend it enough.
