Experience

The Coil changed my life! Before it I was on the pill from am early age as I had really heavy periods every other week, which would leave me almost anemic and in so much pain! However I gained weight on the pill and still bled heavily when I stopped taking it. With the coil I might have 1 day of a light period every 3-6 Months. I dont have any side effects , and I dont have to change it for 4-5years! It was a little uncomfortable for the first 2 days, just like period pains, but after that I didn’t even know it was there. My mother has had one since she gave birth to me, and we cannot reccomend enough!
