Experience

I have suffered with extremely heavy periods since the age of 11 nothing could help me stop them, I would be on for months sometimes. I tried the mirena coil and it’s the only contraception that stopped my periods completely. I still get some side effects and also a really bad migraine around the time when my monthly’s would be but it’s so much better than passing out all the time from constantly losing blood
