Experience

Moved onto the Copper IUD as a result of wanting to reduce hormones after 6 years on hormonal implant. Resulted in weight loss. Have some pain (not every time) during ovulation, two days of moderate cramps during period. Very regular periods almost down to the hour. Slight increase in pain during periods but not unbearable. Would recommend to anyone that wants to stop using hormonal methods and/or struggles with weight
