Experience

The mirena was fine until I wanted it removed. My periods stopped and I had no other side effects. It did migrate and I had to have surgical removal. I was told it migrated as the strings were cut too short and they tend to cut them short so ‘your husband doesn’t have to feel them with his penis’. This I thought was an asshole comment from an asshole consultant.

Experience after taking

No problems. However if I had one again I would make it clear I wanted the strings left long.

Had a similar experience?
