Entirely the opposite! smile smile

it is apparently easier to fit the coil at the tail end of a period as the cervix is slightly open. It can be fitted at other times too as long as you are sure you are not pregnant. I was on cerazette mini pill and not having periods when mine was fitted so it isnt essential to be bleeding.
