Levosert coil

I inserted this coil back in January 2020. The experience to get it inserted in itself was different than I thought. The nurses were very kind and sweet, but it was painful to the point tears rolled down my face (without me being able to hold them back) and I think I only managed the rest of the day, because I asked for a local anaesthetic for the insertion. In terms of mood I remember not being myself and being quick-tempered for a few months. 7 months later I want to get it removed, because my sweating is ridiculous and I have a foul stench coming from both my armpits and down there after 3 to 4 hours after a shower or having washed (not sure if others around me feel it, but I do and it's very uncomfortable). Also my hair is super greasy as it has never been like this. The only plus side I see to hit is the reduction of period, which for me didn't disappear completely, but is a lot less than before. I have a health issue (angioma in the left cheek in my face) that hadn't bothered me in years and resurfaced after inserting the coil. I believe it's related because it's very sensitive to hormones fluctuation, because while testing other contraception methods years ago this would happen also. Looking forward to getting it removed and going back to the Nuvaring which was my previous go to contraception after testing different pills for years.
