Kyleena coil

The insertion process was awful despite taking painkillers beforehand and doing everything I was advised to (the nurses at the appointment were also so unsympathetic when I nearly passed out). Immediately after fitting I had horrendous cramps and hot flushes which lasted for several days afterwards and I was bedbound. This pattern of heavy cramping and bleeding continued and I also experienced quite severe low mood. I struggled to book an appointment to have it removed as they told me it needed time to settle down (they were suggesting anywhere between 3-8 months) but I eventually managed to get it removed a month after having it fitted. If it weren’t for the low mood I might have stuck through for a few months to see but I honestly felt so low every single day. The removal process was surprisingly smooth however!
