Experience

During the first three months of having the coil fitted I had spotting and irregular periods which was annoying but can be managed by additional prescriptions from the doctor. Over time my periods have become much lighter and easier to manage however I do find that my breast as very tender the week before but overall it’s the best contraception I have used.
