Experience

I would 100% recommend this coil to anyone looking to move away from the pill and other hormonal contraceptives. I was apprehensive at first due to a bad experience with the pill and how the hormones affected my mood. The jaydess coil has made me feel myself again for the past 3 years. I’d occasionally experience the usual PMS symptoms, some cramping and mood swings around this time but no more than I usually would on my period and usually just some light spotting around the time of my period. Getting the coil fitted is uncomfortable but definitely worth a few minutes of discomfort for 3 years of not having to remember to take a pill!!
