I had bad problems with the coil. One displaced and nearly ripped my cervix and the other was hanging out and got a bit of tampax caught in the strings and it went mouldy. It was so horrible, I kept smelling something rotting and couldn't figure out what it was. It made me feel really sick when I found out what it was. I had to have really strong anitbiotics to sort it out once they had removed it. My mum also got pregnant on the coil.
Condoms would scare the hell out of me too, I would be so paranoid. Every time we ever tried to use them the top sheared off. I don't know what caused this becasue it wasn't one particular type

Snail thats makes sense I am on Dianette and can't use low dosage pills. I am also not considered healthy because I have problems with my blood and now rheumatoid. :roll:

That sound awful Bel Bel. Yuk! I'm even more put off!

I will stick to my pills I think. Just wish there was a contraceptive that was just as easy and convenient that didn't include pumping your body full of hormones all the time.

Ew, Bel Bel, how horrible! I've never wanted the coil either.

I started the Pill about 20 years ago, probably around the same time you did, Bel, and I remember being categorically told you had to stop it at 40 even if you were healthy. But of course in 20 years medicine has moved on, and we have low-dose pills, mini-pills, etc., so I don't know why they bothered to say that to me really.
