I went for the mirena as it is supposed to make periods lighter (it did) whereas the copper coil is supposed to make periods heavier, longer and more painful.

wouldn't do copper; I've finally had mine removed after 5 years - heavy periods, longer, painful, an although not everyone gets them the side affects in terms of the pre-menstrual activities of bloating, sore boobs etc were far worse, having to chatted to my healthcare prof we both agreed that it would be Mirena next time (if there is to be a next time)
