Experience

I started on the Mirena about 12 months ago after being on the implanon (3 week bleeding periods) and the pill (depressed and anxious mood). I have had a great experience on the Mirena - I barely have any bleeding, no cramping and best of all my cycle will go straight back to normal when I take it out. The first two weeks after insertion were really painful, but since then I've had no issues. The only negative thing for me is I think it has decreased my vaginal lubrication during intercourse, and sometimes the wires have poked me quite painfully during sex. I'm also much more prone to thrush since insertion and I have more discharge than before (often have to wear thin pads).
