Experience

After years and years of trying pill after pill and having so many problems including random bleeding every week and heavy bleeds, tummy aches, mood swings, sore boobs I got so fed up. I spoke to a wonderful family planning doctor who recommended the coil and I’ve never looked back. Don’t even notice it’s in there. Barely there periods where I only need pantyliner if I’m lucky. No period pains, no sore boobs, no more random bleeds. Slightly painful having it put in but worth it! Would recommend 100% it’s changed my life.
