Best hormonal coil (ius)

3.6

116 reviews

Kyleena is a hormonal coil similar to the Mirena, but is slightly smaller in size so it may be more comfortable to fit. It also has a lower dose of progestogen in it, so possibly fewer side effects than the Mirena coil. Due to the low level of hormone, your bleeds may not be as light or more frequent than they would be on other hormonal coils. Kyleena can stay in for up to 5 years.

Kyleena coil  

When first inserted 3 months ago the cramps lasted for about 2-3 weeks inconsistently and occasionally get random ones between cycles, I still get occasional spotting for 1-2 days and periods now last longer than before (originally 3-4 days, now about 4-6 days, sometimes they stop then start again over two weeks). The most frustrating thing is not being able to predict when your period will start, they are getting lighter, but I had hoped they would stop. Also a note on insertion, I know this is all recommended beforehand but make sure you take the pain killers, only local anaesthetic is applied which seemed like it made no difference. You will likely have cramps for at least two weeks or longer whilst it settles down.

Kyleena coil  

The experience is very good in terms of contraception. However I have had quite irregular periods which can be heavy alongside bad cramps.

Kyleena coil  

I started it after changing from the copper coil. Having previously had no issues with the mirena coil i thought this would be fine but instead i got constant spotting, bled after sex, had a painful and irritated cervix and lost my sex drive.
