Experience

Iv had the coil a few years now, and it does the job perfectly, most days I don’t even know it’s there but some days I have to question myself why I have it in. The pelvic pains I get can be really severe to the point I just want to have it removed. I have gained such bad skin and have now got cream off the doctor for it, the only plus side is it has completely stopped my periods
