Experience

On my second copper coil. This one is a 10 year one. Overall a good experience will both, and no adverse side effects. The only difference is periods are a little heavier but I don’t have to think about contraception for 10 years which is amazing. I had limited options before trying the coil as I don’t get on with progesterone heavy contraceptives but I would honest 100% recommend considering a coil. The fitting isn’t nice but it’s only 10 mins and your cover led for 6-10 years!
