Experience

Got the coil fitted on day 1 of my period so the first week I was cramping pretty much non stop but they were still significantly less painful than normal period cramps. My period lasted a bit longer than normal (8-9 days vs 5) and it was heavier. I was also severly fatigued the next 4 days after fitting but then energy levels went back to normal. Been spotting between periods, my second period was longer again but significantly lighter than when I got it fitted. I’ve had no issues with my mental health, been feeling pretty good so far!
