Experience

I was most worried about the pain of getting the Mirena inserted – but it was nowhere near as bad as expected. Best advice I can give is to ask for local anaesthetic- it made the whole thing a breeze. A few days of cramping (manageable without painkillers) and I’m back to normal, with only the tiniest bit of spotting.
