Is it safe to use the combined pill with Copper coil as well?



Is it safe to take the combined pill with the (non-hormone) copper coil to make periods lighter (as the coil makes them heavier)? Would it be okay to use both methods anytime or only after the first 3 months of the coil being fitted?


Hello @Ruth

Many thanks for your question.

As long as you do not have any contraindications to the pill then yes it is safe to take the pill and the IUD together. Having said that it might be worth considering an alternative that does not make your periods so heavy, for example the hormone coil. Or you may want to consider using the pill on its own.

Many thanks
