Experience

I am very sensitive to hormonal birth control (every type made me very depressed). Copper IUD has meant no major side effects other than cramping (which is manageable), slight spotting every now and then (leading up to period and sometimes after an intense workout), and one thrush episode since insertion 4 months ago.
