Experience

I’ve only had the coil for a couple of months. The fitting was painful but I asked for the local anaesthetic gel and it was manageable. So far I’ve had a few cramps and my first period is heavier and longer than normal. I am very happy with it so far and definitely am pleased with my decision, I just wish I was told about what to expect in the first few months with regards to my periods
