Experience

I’ve had the coil in for almost 5 years. It was uncomfortable getting it in but after a day of spotting straight after getting it in I’ve never had any problems. My skin is bad but has always been and where I don’t think it’s helped with that I don’t think it’s made it worse. I get cramps every few months but not that bad at all. I can’t recommend it enough! It is due to come out in a couple of days, I think more of the side effects have happened towards the end but 10/10 for the last 5 years.
