Experience

After having trouble using the combined pill I decided to try the Mirena coil. The procedure when getting the coil was extremely painful and uncomfortable for me and after this I had painful cramping which is common. I bled for the 3 months I had it in. The main reason for get init the coil removed was the really negative change in my mood. I felt like a different person I was constantly miserable and down I had put on weight also as my appetite completely changed! I had 0 sex drive and it really effected my relationship.

Experience after taking

I have had it out for just under a week and have really noticed a difference in myself I feel happier and more relaxed. I have now gone back on the pill and going to see how this goes. I know many people with the Mirena coil that have no problems! Just what works for you
