Experience

I got the mirina coil 7 years ago while getting a laparoscopy therefore didn’t really know what it was like to get it without anaesthetic. Had some cramps initially but pretty quickly my periods stopped which was the ideal. When I got it replaced after the 5 years I did find it really quite painful but I also find smear tests painful so I don’t know that everyone would have this experience. Since having the 2nd coil in I do get some spotting and more pms type symptoms but no real periods. For me this has been a really good choice of contraception
