Copper Coil wins!

The result of our poll on contraceptives is out! Thanks to all who participated. You can view the poll here.

The result is given below in a chart. The contraceptive pills, patch, vaginal ring, contraceptive injection, withdrawal method, natural methods (like checking cervical mucus), caps and diaphragms got no votes at all! Suprise, suprise!

So you the readers voted the copper coil as your fav contraception.

See a picture of the coil in my hand below. Many people are suprised at how small it really is. They usually had a mental picture of a large motor coil in their head or a climbing rope ūüėÄ

But the coil is really quite small.

So the next question is:

What do you like about the copper coil? What makes it your contraception of choice? If you didnt vote for it, what puts you off the copper coil? What makes you go, ‘Arrgh..noo!’ when the doctor suggests a copper coil? What method do YOU like/use and what makes it your own favourite? Are you surprised at the methods that got no vote?

Thanks again to all who voted! Watch out for our next poll!
