Hormonal coil? Switch to non hormonal. I am a migraine sufferer and GP wouldn't allow me to take the pill.

My periods before were so bad always have been my periods have been worse then my child birth before .. a lot of people said the the non hormonal coil makes you cramp and bleed heavy other wise I would've went for that one x

Oh no my gp has just referred me for a coil because all other contraception was making me bleed heavy or make my migraines worse, this does not fill me with hope sad

You need to go back to your GP. Do you take any medication for your migraines?

I have had the non hormonal coil for years. My periods are the same as before, possibly better. Be prepared to rest after you have it put in - for me it felt like a period and I nearly demanded they take it out! It was absolutely fine after a few days.

I was actually unluckily diagnosed later with a (very rare) women's lung condition that is thought to be related to oestrogen, for which they advise not to have hormonal contraception.

Do talk to your doctor about the migraines and your contraception as it is a sign that shouldn't be ignored.

Yeah I defiantly will .. I'm not 100 percent it's the coil but I'm assuming it's making them worse . . I just want it out anyway because even my moods are bad ..coil may be good for some people !! May look into the non hormonal .. I don't take medication I just try sleep them off if I can but I have 3 Young children and no help so it ain't nice looking after them with a bad head and throwing up . Defo going doctors though
Thank you! X

Try asking for Pitziofen (not sure of the total correct spelling at the moment)
I take one every night to prevent migraines and they really have helped me. It's so hard to cope with a migraine when you have children to run after so I totally sympathise sad hope you manage to get it sorted out soon!

Are they any side effects on them?
I will ask my doctors ! .. and I know it's horrible whilst I'm throwing up and there just watching me .. my kids are extra loud too!!
But thank you ! Will defo ask xx
