Experience

Previously, I was on the pill and I was shockingly awful at taking it. Someone then recommended me the copper coil and I investigated further. Since having it, around 4yrs ago now, I haven’t looked back!! Its amazing, I don’t have to worry about it, yeah it sucks having it put in (not the actually fitting, but after when your body tries to reject it) but it is 100% worth it. Occasionally I have bad cramps with it and I have noticed heavier periods but again, still worth it. I am SO much happier than on the pill which was doing some crazy funky messing up to my head, I was severely unhappy!
