I had the copper coil for just over a year, in the end I found the 2 week super heavy periods and cramping unbearable and I had to have it removed.
I am very acne prone and previously been on roaccutane, luckily my skin has cleared up now. My skin was great on the copper coil because there were no hormones.
I am looking for contraception and would like to know peoples experiences with any of the hormonal coils and acne. I don’t know if my acne was hormonal, but it was so bad and I don’t want to risk anything flaring it up again.
If anyone has any experience of hormonal coils and acne - Whether it made it worse (like everything I’ve read says...) or been unaffected by it. I’d love to know
Any suggestions you have would be hugely appreciated. Thanks in advance
