Experience

After being on so many different pills since I was 16, at 21 I decided to get the Mirena Coil. My periods when I were young were terrible, I now have none (sometimes light brown blood every few months). I sometimes feel a stabbing pain every now and again but it is nothing in comparison to the period pains I used to get on and off the pill.
