Experience

Having this inserted was a very painful experience. Not the insertion but the cramps that came straight after. I spent the full night in terrible pain and was sick/very faint. However I must say once these pains passed I became slowly very settled with it. It was so much better than having to remember to take the pill everyday and once I knew how to check that it was in okay I was very happy. However after a month i started to get BV and Thrush as well as a LOT of spots! I’m gutted because other than this I actually love this form of contraception but I think its best I get in touch with my doctor to see what help there can be and whether its worth trying a different type of coil. (I will however be asking if I can get a better form of pain relief this time.)
