I had the IUD for two years before it came out using a menstrual cup. I had heavier and more painful periods, they would also last about 7 days instead of my usual 4-5. I tried Kyleena IUS for a year to help with the periods, but have now gone back to Copper to avoid hormones. I am using the CU-Safe T 300, which I was told have less copper than what I had previously. I’m hoping the cramps will be slightly better, as overall I really like this form. Worth noting I didn’t have bad periods before starting this, so the periods are tolerable.

My periods stopped completely, and the odd cramps I had early on were pretty much gone after about 6/7 months (although they weren’t bad). I’ve changed back to copper coil as I felt the hormones were affecting my mental health, feeling like I was on autopilot and low moods which I felt similarly when I was on the POP pill.
