Experience

Got this after my Jaydess ran out, after being told they were similar but this lasts longer. However, the increase in hormones definitely impacted me negatively. My breasts have got bigger for an F to GG, my skin went from clear to increasingly bad acne, I’m currently having to use antibiotics twice a day and 2 different topical prescriptions to stop the acne caused by the hormone imbalance the coil caused me. It also caused thrust in the 2nd week of my cycle. Definitely, made me more light-headed and dizzy too. Luckily, when I went to get this taken out the clinic had a Jaydess it could be replaced with, but it’s disappointing that many NHS trusts see this coil as a direct replacement for Jaydess and have stopped providing both.
