    It’s the progesterone be fine on coil I was terrible on that progesterone try 4 types I can’t have could as progesterone intolerant so on 75 patch with 12_14 weeks progesterone gel and feel great I was awful on progesterone oestrogen fine and on a patch 75 not high you will be ok once balance ok coil much better than tablets as they deliver directly into uterus no side affects believe me stay with patch 75 and it will settle progesterone is the culprit x
