Experience

The coil has changed my life for the better! Yes it took a while to settle and I had some fairly heavy bleeding on and off for a few weeks, plus some mild acne and breast pain. However, all those things were an inconvenience rather then debilitating like my periods had been. Once the coil settled (3 months after having it put in), I’ve not had a single period. I don’t even know it’s there. Not for everyone, I know but it’s been the best option for me. I tried every pill known to (wo)man and all gave me migraines or made me sick. The coil hasn’t impacted me that way and I would recommend anyone gives it a try!
