Experience

I was previously on the combined pill but I kept forgetting to take it at a regular time missed pills frequently and as a result ended up having to use emergency contraception. For me the coil was always my next option it was such a easy process and yes it was a little bit uncomfortable during the fitting process( I recommend that you bring someone with you ) it has been the best thing I’ve ever done no changes in mood, no Change in my sex drive. Stopped my periods all together apart from the occasional spotting. I recommend it to anyone who feels the pill isn’t for them.
