I’m now on my 2nd coil and wouldn’t change this contraception to anything else. I’ve not had a period for 6 years (a tiny bit of spotting when I had it changed), and it’s great not having to remember to take a pill everyday.
The only downside is that I’m more prone to thrush, but it’s not a constant issue.
I’m a mum to 4 kids, and after being refused sterilisation by my GP, the coil was my next best option. I now wouldn’t opt to be sterilised as my periods would return when having the coil removed, and it’s so convenient to not have them anymore.
