Copper coil + acne

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

It feels great to talk about skin problems openly with other people who understand how important it is to the way you feel about yourself.

I have a question - has anyone else found that the copper coil (not Mirena, which stops your periods) has affected their acne? After having terrible acne as a teenager my skin was reasonably stable until i had it put in. It makes your periods longer and much heavier so even though it is non-hormonal unlike Mirena and the Pill, I am wondering if there is a link?

Please post if you have come across this. If it wasn't so painful to put back in I would have it taken out tomorrow, so I need to gather a bit of evidence to see if it's worth this big step!
