I had the copper coil fitted for 5 months. I didn't want hormonal contraception after past experience so this seemed like a great option bar the warnings of 'heavier' periods. I had extreme cramps on fitting, following which the bleeding started. I bled extremely heavily for 3 weeks of each month during the time I had this coil. This made me feel extremely low and had a negative effect on my sex life. I reached breaking point and switched to the low hormone coil Jaydess, which has also caused me continuous breakthrough bleeding. I'm yet to find something workable for me, though am about to try Kyleena.

I had the Jaydess coil fitted 2 months ago. I'd been hesitant to use hormonal contraception after past experience, but had super heavy bleeding for 3 weeks per month on the copper coil which left me with little choice. I opted for Jaydess for its low hormone count. For 1 week I didn't bleed, which was a relief after the copper coil, then the bleeding began. I've now bled constantly for 7 weeks and have to wear a pantyliner everyday. Generally the bleeding is not a lot but it's constantly there which has led me to struggle to enjoy or feel comfortable during sex. My partner and I have not engaged in oral sex since nor felt able to do anything adventurous. I've also had normal periods during this time when the bleeding has got heavier, and my breasts were extremely swollen and sore for the first month after the fitting. This coil has had such a negative effect on my sex life that it has truly defeated its own purpose! I'm now booking an appointment to try the Kyleena as a last ditch coil attempt - it may be that I need a slightly higher hormone level to stop the breakthrough bleeding. If that fails then it's down to Natural Cycles.
