Hi all, I’m 39, always had regular periods and have the copper coil. About a year ago I noticed that I was starting to get really heavy cold symptoms; tonnes of snot, nose runs like a tap, sneezing my head off, awful itching/irritated feeling behind my nose, headaches. The sneezing is so severe I feel like my chest is killing. I’ve noticed that it happens just before my period.
It’s totally debilitating for a couple of days then I start my period and I’m fine. I’m so sick of it and don’t know what to do. Anyone else have this?
I’m totally fed up ☹️
