Experience

Best decision changing to a coil! Tried 4 different pills and all gave me horrible side effects (acne, migraines)!so opted for the coil. First couple of months I had womb cramps of an evening but nothing more than you would expect during a period and a very light period for about 4 weeks but I mean very very light. It then stopped and I haven’t had a period since. No other side effects really and one less thing to worry about! And the insertion was absolutely fine, not painful at all, just a slight cramp! Would recommend to everyone, just give it time to settle.
