Has anyone here done this or know someone who has?

A friend is going today to get this done at her dr's office, and her sister or one of her friends (or somebody she knows, anyway lol) had it done not too long ago, and they highly recommend it. I'll have to look into it more, but I'm very seriously considering doing this. We have 4 kids, and that's definitely good for us lol.. I was just wondering if anyone here might have had this done or know someone personally that has. 

Here's the link to their website:

Edit:

Well, like i said in a comment a minute ago, it's going to be a no-go for me... I read that the coils are made of nickel, and i'm VERY allergic to nickel.... dang. Oh well, i guess. From what i'm gathering online at least, that may actually be for the better, at least in this case.

I've thought about, but my sister talked me out of it. She's s nurse in an OB/gyn office & says she sees a lot of problems with pain & infection afterwards.
