Experience

I got really bad spots at the end of my first year of the coil, but part of me suspects that might be the after effects of my body flushing out the last of the pill in my system after so many years. After that my skin has gone back to normal. And I feel happier than I was on the pill. Warning though for the first month I bloated and bled consistently every day, and then it was spotting for a bit and now an occasional period that lasts a couple of days.
