Thanks for jumping to my Post!
I had the Copper (NON-HORMONAL) Coil fitted at the end of March 2013, as I tend to find i have very bad side effects on the contraceptive pills and the injection as they all contain hormones.
Since I had the coil fitted a good 2+ months ago, I have been experiencing the worst side effects (I say side effects, however, I am assuming they are related as I was fine before).
I go to bed tired, wake up tired, feel like I need a nap at 10.00am, I am today sitting at my desk and feel and look like a zombie! I wake up and am so tired I feel like I cannot move! I have headaches, heavy head, dizzy feeling and even thinking of excesising makes me quiver in my boots at the thought of it. I HATE THIS FEELING!!!! I dont even feel like I have the energy to talk to anyone!!!
I tend to have spotting for about 4 days and then a full-blown period for 10 days!!!!! my periods before were nearly existent and would last 3 days and I would hardly know they were there!
I also have these weird upper stomach/chest pains. I went to my Drs who confirmed all was OK and of course advised me that this Coil has no effects as it is non-hormonal. but after reading threads on here, I am somewhat relieved!
Any comments greatly appreciated, or similiar symptoms.
I am 30 years of age.
PS: Shall I have the coil taken out?
