My Friend recommended this to me, she is a doctor, her sil is a doctor and the info was that it is highly thought of. I have been on it for a few years now and now have no periods at all! I am still aware of when I should be having a period but with none of the embarrasssing knicker changes that I previously had to endure.
My mood swings are less severe as is my pmt. I certainly would recommend you had a talk to your womens fp health unit- this coil had to be be discussed in one meeting and then fitted at the next by the consultant gynocologist, the biggest problem they have with these is people deciding they don't want it after all! You must be prepared for up to 6 months of erratic bleeding, it was less than this for me but the doctors should be able to talk you through this or give you the info. Make sure they have been on the training course to fit this particular coil.
I would definately have it again.
