Experience

I first had the coil fitted when I was 22 and I won’t lie, it wasn’t particularly nice having it fitted. For the next few days I had some good going cramps and I had spotting for about 3 months. All of this was worth it. I don’t have periods and my PMT has gone. I now have no side effects and I forget it’s there. My husband has never felt it either. I had it refitted 5 years later which was easier. I didn’t get nearly as much cramping and no spotting. Just push through the beginning bit and it is worth it.
