I have always suffered from very heavy, painful periods and they have got worse into my later 20s. I am really keen to avoid any hormonal contraceptives as I have tried many and have not got on with them. I don’t want a hormonal IUD and really like the idea of the copper one.
My question is, does the IUD make a heavy period heavier or will they stay the same? I have got used to managing my periods with regular bathroom trips and painkillers, so it wouldn’t bother me if they stayed the same but I might end up missing work if they got much worse.
Hope you can help.
