WILL IT HURT? GETTING AND USING THE HORMONAL COIL
Concerns about pain are natural, but there’s no need to worry
The hormonal coil (IUS) is one of the most reliable long-acting contraceptives. Once fitted, it can remain in place for up to 3 to 5 years. That means no more having to remember to take a daily pill, change a patch every week, or make a monthly appointment for a contraceptive injection. Despite its ease of use, many women have concerns about getting an IUS fitted, and what they can expect afterwards.
While you should consult your doctor or nurse to help you decide whether to get an IUS, we’ve tackled some of the most common questions here.
