Experience

I mainly decided to use a mirena coil because I had very heavy periods to the extent that I was anaemic. It worked extremely well for that. I now have normal periods that are fairly regular. I have also found it very good as a contraceptive. Once it is in you don’t have to think about it at all. I just had one problem which was one time I thought I was pulling out a tampon and in fact I was pulling on my mirena strings, and I dislodged it. This was at the beginning of a bank holiday so I couldn’t get any help for several days. I became so uncomfortable that I removed it myself.
