Experience

Excellent experience. Have used for 5 years and have just had a replacement fitted. After years happily on the pill I was advised by my doctor to change to a different pill and tried several but none worked for me. I then tried mirena and it was great – no periods, no monthly cycle, no mood swings. In fact no side effects at all. I found the fitting quite painful (apparently less painful if you’ve had children, which I haven’t) but very short term downside for five years of contraception that works fantastically well for me.
