The next day after copper IUD insertion

Today is my 2nd day of having this copper IUD on my system. This morning, when I woke up, I felt dizzy and I took Advil. As the hours pass by, my dizziness is not going away, and I kind of think that this has something to do with the copper IUD. So I made my research about this, the worst side effect I've read so far is what they call 'copper toxicity'.

Copper toxicity is a very dangerous diagnosis where some tend to have some hallucination?! Brain fog, insomnia, severe headache, hair loss, depression, muscle pain and etc.. OMG! What did I inserted on my body?! (I'm kind of paranoid right now!)

So after, I read about the treatments, like intake of Zinc (eat red meats like beef and pork, poultry, fish), vitC, vitB, protein (cum is protein right? ;) ), manganese, iron and so on. Then avoid taking those with copper (like some low brand vitamins with copper on it), avoid chocolates, peanuts, COFFEE (I am crying now), seeds (don't know what it means) and so on! So I cooked meat for my lunch (good thing I am working from home today).

Damn! Will I be having this paranoia if I choose hormonal IUD instead of Copper IUD? Why the f didn't I make research on that before having it implanted on me?!

I am seriously paranoid, but I still need to give it a try since it's just my second day. Please advise me what to do to avoid or prevent copper toxicity.. please

I am from Toronto, using Mona Lisa. I did posted my experience too in here prior to this post.

I took Advil and when I woke up this morning (3rd day), my dizzinness is gone. Probably my body is just adjusting, tho I still see spotting/bleeding tho I'm on 3rd day post insertion.

Thanks for the info above, appreciate it :)

Ah, the Mona Lisa IUDs are pretty similar to Parargard in terms of copper amount. From what I found Mona Lisa's are either 375 or 380 depending on the specific one you get. I'm glad the dizziness is gone. Expect spotting for several days and random cramps for a couple weeks.

Congrats on your new IUD!
