My GP and dermatologist confirmed that the coil caused me to have chronic acne. I had never suffered with acne before, and I’ve really struggled with having it. Luckily I’m slowly sorting it out with the help of my dermatologist. I originally went on the coil to help with my period pains, and it helped with that for the first six months, and then they came back as bad as ever. I also had an awful experience having the coil inserted.
I had what felt and seemed like a period for about a week, and that was it. My skin is slowly starting to improve, but I have been using various medications prescribed by my dermatologist.
