Getting a coil - copper or mirena?

I think I want a coil, I forget to take the pill, I can't have the injection and I have only heard bad things about the implant. We currently use condoms but would prefer not to (I am married so not worried about STDs).

I am going to go to our local FP clinic for advice but wondered which coil was better? I have found quite a bit on the mirena, but not a lot on the copper coil.

My periods are currently very regular and light, would a coil change this?

Any advice is very welcome smile

copper coil can make them heavier and more painful. Mirena may stop them completely.

I had a terrible experience with the copper coil. Periods lasting 3 weeks with only a week break in between. I perservered for 18 months in the hopes that it would get better but they just got longer and heavier.
