Experience

I had my first coil for the max 5 years without any problems. It was perfect – periods almost stopped or were so light as to be negligible and I noticed no side effects. I replaced it for a second one but this time round I felt unbelievably cross all the time. I would lose my temper over nothing and it was really out of character. As soon as it was removed, I felt lighter and happier. Could be coincidence but I don’t think so – maybe for me 5 yeas was all my body could tolerate.
