Experience

Came off the pill due to mood swings headaches and vaginal dryness. Had the copper coil inserted as I wanted something with no hormones. In three months my periods have been slightly heavier but also shorter in length so around 4 days. Also only heavy for the first 2 days. A little more cramping but again only for a short period of time. Sex drive has increased mood swings have decreased. Wish I’d have got the coil years ago!
