Experience

I put a little bit of weight on, but I can’t be sure that this was down to the Jaydess. My GP actually told me that I had a Mirena fitted so I’ve had this in for 5 years now… it only works for 3. Somehow I haven’t got pregnant but I am extremely concerned, I’m not sure whether the issue is with my or if the Jaydess is still functioning. My moods have been quite up and down but this is normal for me. I also had quite bad acne for the first 3 years which has now subsided (probably because the Jaydess has ceased working). I’m going to go for the copper coil instead- I desperately want to try something without hormones whilst trying to lose weight and working on my mental health. It also lasts for 10 years which is a great bonus.
