Experience

Insertion was very painful and the cramping afterwards lasted for a day or two. Most of the time I had no issues, but would occasionally get horrendous cramps that would floor me for an hour or so. I also had irregular periods and spotting and my boyfriend could feel the coil occasionally during sex, so I eventually decided to go back to the implant after about 18 months. I was dreading the removal but luckily I couldn’t feel it at all and I was glad to be rid of it.
