Experience

Sadly for me I had almost daily excruciating pains and myself and my partner could feel the coil moving during sex. If I didn’t suffer with the awful cramping I would have stuck with this method as this was my only side effect and the overall reassurance of a reliable form of contraception would have outweighed. Sadly this method was not for me, something I may try again after childbirth
