Experience

It did what it was supposed to do, prevent pregnancy. The cost was a complete lack of sex drive (like I hated having sex and would not have minded never having sex again) and being emotionally flat. My periods were fairly irregular. I would have light periods for 7-9 days, sometimes only a week in between periods and spotting would come and go.

Experience after taking

Within 2 or 3 days of having the Mirena removed I feel so much happier, my relationship with myself and my partner feels better and my sex drive is back! I feel amazing.
