    So I've been on the PO pill for nearly two years now (started on Cerelle, went on cerazette about February). Since going onto cerazette I've had no problems and it's working really well for me. HOWEVER I'm kinda sick of having to take a pill every day (although I am really good and rarely forget to take it).
    I don't really want the implant because I have a weird thing about my arms and hate them being touched- getting the implant put in isn't a problem but it's the taking it out i don't like. Plus, I'd rather have a coil because I have 4 years left at uni so I'd rather have something that lasts 7 years as a pose to three.
    The thing that worries me about the coil is the pain of having it put in because I haven't had a baby. Has anyone had one? How did you find it?

    The pain varies, so it's difficult to say how bad it will be. They do advise taking ibuprofen before insertion, and some places will give you a local anesthetic if you're worried. It's also a good idea to not plan anything particularly strenuous for the same day, which can mean taking the day off work if necessary.

    I found mine wasn't too bad. I had stomach cramps, which didn't go completely with painkillers. I had my coil in the morning, and they lasted all day - then the next day I woke up and was fine.

    Different places will use different kinds of coils. The one I have lasts 5 years. So if you're picking this just because you think it will last a certain length of time you need to check whether the one they use actually will last that long.
