The Kyleena affected my mood dramatically, even triggering panic attacks and hyperventilation. I also started experiencing spasms and swelling in my legs which due to past injuries created pain. My periods became very clot heavy - with really severe cramps.

Not having periods is really handy. I think my mood is a little lower but its better than when i was on Merina Coil. I definitely think my sex drive is lower but i also have three kids running around so it may not be just the coil!

I have had the kyleena coil for just over a year and really like it. The insertion was absolutely fine with painkillers and I was very bloated but not in any pain after insertion. My periods returned (I was on the combined pill before this) after three months and are much lighter than before. My skin initially was quite bad but has cleared up now and my hair did start to shed but stopped after five months. My skin is perhaps a little greasier than before and I’ve got slightly darker body hair but otherwise no bad side effects really.
