Experience

From my point of view the perfect contraception – zero side effects other than much lighter periods (hurrah!) and lasts three years. I couldn’t take any form of pill without serious side effects and the copper coil gave me awful cramps so this was a godsend. Only stopped it to have a baby and point to note there is that you need to wait a couple of months after removal before trying (but it didn’t affect the time it takes to get pregnant at all).

Experience after taking

Only slight drawback is time it takes for periods to return to normal, otherwise no side effects at all.
