Experience

I absolutely loved this coil when I first got it – increased sex drive and no periods! Now I get really bad PMS and incredibly painful boobs once a month – 6 weeks (so bad I can’t sleep), which is making me look into some other options. I love it other than this, but think maybe my body needs some more hormones. I was on the pill for 8 years before this, since the age of 13 as I used to get very unwell each month and had to regulate my hormones. I do really love that I don’t have to worry about human error or wear a condom with my boyfriend. I just wish my mood (bad anxiety) and sore boobs wasn’t so bad each month.
