Experience

Apart from the total loss of sex drive and morning sickness the coil was brilliant for me. (I was on a desogestrel pill before which made me really depressed) My acne cleared, periods a lot lighter, less painful and shorter too! The first 6-8months I had really irregular periods and spotting with some cramps but stick with it because it’s deffinatly worth it!!! (Also not painful at all to have put in! Feels like a really quick light cramp)
