Experience

Advise taking it easy when coil first fitted or changed. Had a day of bad cramps the first time it was done, and nearly fainted on route home. By time number 3 took care of myself and had no side effects. It’s a brilliant contraception. I don’t know what I’d do without it. Getting someone to fit it was the hardest part!
