Experience

I’m really happy with the coil. I felt unwell for about 30 minutes after I had it put in, and then it subsided completely and I’ve been fine ever since. My periods stopped but I do still experience tender breasts and PMS once a month, which I had quite badly before already. It’s so great not having to worry about taking a pill each day and I noticed a considerable difference to my mood when I was on Microgynon (pill) – I felt like a cloud had lifted!
