I wish I could say that this contraception has been perfect for me like others who have tried it but afraid I had quite a few issues in the 7 months I had it in. Positives - Definitely noticed that my hormones were barely affected, I felt content and happy a lot of the time. I have been far less teary than when I was on a combined pill to regulate my periods and barely any mood swings! Negatives: Unfortunately 3 weeks after the coil being inserted, I got a raging kidney infection. Over the next few months, I got random persistent aches, near my hip that would be stronger around ovulation, which I'm getting checked out if it is cyst related. Far more breast tenderness too. And then the joy of joys of repetitivr thrush and cystitis!

When I had the Kyleena IUS inserted it was incredibly painful, I had debilitating cramps that lasted around 8-10 hours after the procedure. My first bleed was very heavy and lasted for almost 2 weeks, the next one was lighter and by the third I had lost my periods. Once every few months I would have pains so bad that it felt like someone was stabbing me in my abdomen and I could not move, not even painkillers would relieve this. I felt like my sex drive was completely killed, if I did try any kind of penetration I had that same cramping and ocassionally I bled after sex.

Overall it has been very mixed. I’ve enjoyed not having to think about having to take a pill and little to no periods however there have been a few issues. Fitting was quite uncomfortable and left me feeling really disorientated / nauseous for a few days. Breast tenderness and cramps have got more severe and last for longer now than they did in the first year. Also a lot sharper cramps than I wS used to before the coil.
