Experience

I changed from the pill to the coil and saw nothing but a huge improvement in my mood. Initially I did break out but this cleared the first month, nearly a year later I have 0 to very light periods every 30-35 days which I track on an app. The only thing (tiny thing) is that I suffer with some stomach cramps and a lot more bloating with the coil. It has not affected my sex life and I forget it’s there most of the time (untill I get a random belly cramp)! Would highly recommend for any one who may be considering!
