Experience

Struggled with the pill remembering to take it. The Mirena coil is amazing, I heard horror stories how the get lost or drop out. Have had no issues and am on my second 5 year cycle with it.no periods during this time and none of the monthly headaches I was getting with the pill. I am now in the menopause and only need one table daily as already have the hormone from the coil.
