Experience

Over the years I have been on both types of pill and had a copper coil all of which I didn’t get on with. I then spent 3 years just using just condoms. I found having the kyleena put in quite painful and for the first month I bled a bit on most days and had painful cramps. I did get a urine infection in that month too. However after this it settled down and now I still get my period on time but much much lighter. Haven’t experienced anymore cramping but I do have very tender breasts the week before my period. Mood wise, I feel agitated/ angry usually the week before my period but this is no different to how I felt without any contraception. I was worried about having this due to when I was on the mini pill, I felt so depressed and this has the same hormone however I definitely don’t feel that way with this. Wish I had this put in years ago!
