Experience

I wasn’t warned that the side effects of having the coil placed would be so drastic. From the moment it was inserted I was in agony. I ended up in A&E, emergency ward for female health, out of hour GP and I was on very strong painkillers just so I could attend my university exams. It was only when I was getting ultrasounds that I found out the coil had a possibility of causing an immense amount of damage to my womb.
