I went on the coil 5 years ago and it's due to come out. Can't face having another one fitted. So is the injection a wise choice ?

    Hello smile My friend had an injection and one of the side effects is definitelly weight gain and mood swings. The worst part of it - if you cannot deal with these side effects or any other ones you cannot do anything about it, you cannot take the injection out of your body.. If you did not like the coil, I would suggest the implant - if your body accepts it, I believe its the best option ever as you dont need to worry about anything for theee years and you can take it out whenever you wish. (Although I had the implant myself and took it out as my body was rejecting it big time, I would still recommend it to a friend, haha).

    Hope it helps smile

      I just want it out, but need the hormone control side of it. So if the injection will do the same job, no more coil ! 😀
