Experience

Having been on oral contraceptive pills for 5 years (I tried several with varying effects originally for extremely painful and irregular periods), I decided to give the coil a go. The procedure was painful and the cramps to follow for about a week or 2 after were pretty bad but a few months down the line I am so glad I got it! I have absolutely no periods now, no cramping, no side effects and can’t feel it at all! Would really recommend.
