The procedure of having the copper IUD inserted isn’t pleasant, however it’s bearable. My copper IUD caused so much heavy breakthrough bleeding, period pains and backache. I couldn’t have sex as the strings were visible from the entrance of my vagina and were really sore. The coil had caused an infection, leading to pelvic pain and abnormal discharge. I couldn’t wait to have it removed!

I took this pill from the age of 15-23 for prevention of heavy, painful and irregular periods. I had light and regular withdrawal bleeds and only two occasions of breakthrough bleeding during those 8 years. It eased my acne and spots an incredible amount. The down sides - I developed OCD and depression soon after taking the pill & am now medicated for this. I gained 4 stone in weight and was recently diagnosed with borderline hypothyroidism, thought to be influenced by long-term pill use. My libido decreased massively and I would develop thrush monthly. Overall, it works well for regulating periods, but can have so many negative impacts, so it’s worth looking at others before settling with the pill! X
