Experiencing mood swings, anxiety, panic attacks, low sex drive, and sleeplessness after insertion of non-hormonal copper coil
I'm 30 years old with no children, had a T-Safe copper coil fitted about 6 months ago after taking COC for almost 6 years. I had no problem with the coil, just slight discomfort and spotting after insertion and heavier and longer periods which doesn't bother me. I have regular periods The only problem I have is how I feel 1-2 weeks before the period I experience uncontrollable mood swings, anxiety, panic attacks, low sex drive, and sleeplessness. My gynecologist told non-hormonal coil means you have none of those symptoms but mine seem to get worse. Why?
@leif Hello, I have also fitted the same non-hormonal copper coil. I have read a lot as I was losing so much blood that I had to be prescribed iron tablets & have internal investigations done. Later I got rid of it. I read that copper can react in the body like a caffeine rush & upsets your hormonal balance. You should definitely talk to your doctor if you haven’t talked to them. If it continues then you should also get rid of it. Thanks.
