Experience

Getting my coil fitted and the few hours afterwards were painful to say the least. I have been lucky enough to not experience very bad period pains in my life so the cramping was immense. I can see why a lot of woman opt for this option after having children as I can only imagine the cramps to feel like “tame” contractions. Since that day however I have nothing but positive experiences and have noticed a definite improvement to my mood versus how I felt with the implant.
