Excellent

Too many to list in this box.

A rough ride for a couple of months.

BACKGROUND Well, after years of faffing around with other methods of contraception and an appointment at the clinic to discuss the options, I finally decided to get an Intra Uterine Device (IUD) fitted just over three months ago. Always wanting to know what I'm getting myself into, and what's...

possible chance of ectopic pregnancy

Let me tell you about myself, I am now 26 with two children. From the age of 16 I went on the contraception Pill and tried various ones as they caused headaches and moody spells. I came off the pill when I was 22 to try for my first baby and after she was born I just decided to go straight back...

I'm one of these people who simply cannot tolerate hormonal contraception, and since I'm severely disabled I absolutely cannot risk pregnancy either. Thankfully, there is a solution. Copper IUDs come in various shapes and sizes. I have a Nova-T380, which is the most popular IUD for women who have...

No hormones, less pain

heavier periods, slighltly painful insertion

Right.... Where to begin... Well I won't bore you with all the details of my contraceptive history but let's just say I've tried most things and nothing works, I've been on various different contraceptive pills which all had their side effects, I couldn't have a cap fitted due to my partners...

Can pretty much forget about it, no interruptions...

Pain on insertion

--Why?-- I got my IUD because I wanted something with less potential user error than condoms (or the pill), and didn't want to muck around with my hormones (and grow facial hair). An IUD is pretty much all that's left if you don't want to use condoms or hormones and are too lazy for fertility...

Hassle-Free Contraception..

Satisfactory

published 12/10/2008

I had the Nova T380 coil fitted three weeks ago. I chose the non-hormonal IUD as I am suspicious of putting hormones into my body and wanted something slightly more natural. The fitting was reasonably uncomfortable and my period lasted 7 days, the last of which being quite heavy with painful cramps. I then had a carefree week when I didn't even know it was there. Now ten days later I have permanent internal bleeding (dark brown discharge) and mild cramps. I thought side-effects only happened to other people but this coil is turning into a nightmare. I would recommend people to think seriously about the pros and cons of having this fitted.
