Copper Coil and weight loss

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi can I ask if anyone has come off the pill had the copper coil fitted and managed to lose weight. I've put 3 stone on and can't budge it. I'm going for a consultation on Monday for the coil. I think what I'll find weird is I've never had a period in years so will not be looking forward to that. Do you have to have it fitted after you've had a period? Thanks

    Hi! I was told to come in while on my period so it's easier to put in(um it was painful for me) I've had it for about a month now. I'm not sure if I've lost weight because I try to eat healthy and exercise and have been tryin to lose weight while on and off the pill. Do you eat healthy and exercise?

    Hi Kelly,

    How is it going? I'm wondering whether you went ahead with the copper coil? I just recently (less than 3 weeks ago) got one fitted to be free of hormonal contraception which I just haven't got on at all with since I had my little boy who's 3. Before him (and when I caught!), I was on the combined pill and understandably I didn't want to go back to that after... I have spent the last 3 years trying various things, depo injections, the implant and progesterone only pill... Weight gain (or at least a real struggle to lose weight) has been a reoccurring theme of all of these. I remain a stone heavier than my pre-pregnancy weight despite being moderately active and eating a on the whole healthy diet... I am really hoping that this change to the copper coil will help me feel better in my own skin. It was painful having it fitted and I have been very bloated on and off but it's early days and when I weighed myself this morning I was 2lbs lighter than this time last week... I'd call that hope! :-)
