Experience

I love the coil, totally recommend! I had a rough time with insertion, it was so painful I passed out due to a drop in my blood pressure. But I would still recommend it and will definitely have mine replaced after 5 years. I have little to no bleeding and my periods have pretty much stopped most months. The one symptom that’s new for me is very tender breasts before I’m “due on”, plus I still get normal PMS, just no bleeding. If you’ve had trouble with other contraceptives like the implant I’d really recommend the coil, I wish I’d had it years earlier!
