Experience

In the long term (6+ months) the coil is perfect for me. I no longer have periods and do not need to worry about contraception. It was very painful to be inserted, I believe this is because I have not had a child. I had irregular periods with bad camps for a few months. This settled down and now after a year I no longer have periods. I swapped to the coil from the pill as I have migraines.
