Experience

The hormonal coil has been AMAZING for helping with my migraines. I also love that I no longer get my period (I spotted for about 2 weeks after getting the coil, and haven’t had my period since). I was not prepared for the insertion of the coil to be so painful. I’ve never felt that type of pain, or that severity of pain. But given how much it’s changed my migraines I would do it all over again!
