Experience

Changed my life! I know a lot of women have very different experiences with the coil, but apart from the (somewhat traumatic) experience of getting it inserted (which takes 1 min), it’s made me feel really relaxed about my sex life and the dangers of unwanted pregnancy! I recommend it to all my girlfriends
