I'm looking for other ladies' experiences with the copper coil. I have diagnosed stage 2 endometriosis which was treated in March (laparoscopy and ablation). Initially my cyclical pain was less and my periods lighter but that's since worsened again. I'm highly sensitive to hormonal contraceptions and am therefore unable (and refuse) to use them for the management of my symptoms. I take tranexamic acid during my period (for the 4 days allowed as directed). I'm also allergic to latex so as you may imagine contraception can be rather tedious as the only option really left is latex free condoms or the copper coil.
I'm 23 and my fiancée is 29 so a vasectomy/hysterectomy isn't really suitable. In the past I have been on numerous different contraceptive pills, the implant, the depo provera injection and the mirena coil, all of which have not been suitable. I know the copper coil can increase the heaviness of periods which is a concern but I am intrigued to hear of other ladies' experiences.
Thanks in advance.
