Experience

I wish I had used this in my 20’s. After having 2 children I didn’t want to go back on the pill as it messed with my mood. Im now in my late 30’s and can not praise this form more. The fitting was not painfull, I was really worried about the fitting as I had both babies by c-section and my cervix was very tight. I just talked all the way through the fitting and couldn’t believe it when the nurse said she had finished. I had 3 regular periods after and then nothing since. Its fantastic. I recomend anyone getting more info for coil fittings.
