Experience

I love the coil, after years on the pill with terrible mood side effects the coil and it’s lesser hormonal impact on my brain is so much better. It hurt when it went in, but it only took 3 minutes, and felt severe pain for 30 seconds. My periods are much much lighter now. And rarely painful. They are still very regular and I’m fortunate not to have felt hardly any side effects throughout. Very happy and would recommend.
