Experience

The Mirena coil lasts 5 years and stops periods for many people - it did for me and I love not having to deal with the faff of bleeding every month. I have had the coil since I was 19 (I've just had my second one put in the other day) and haven't noticed any side effects. The discomfort and awkwardness of having it put in is well worth not worrying about pregnancy or experiencing any side effects (as I did when I was on the pill). The procedure to have it put in takes about 10 minutes and I'm not going to lie it does hurt, but is over quickly. I had bad period-style cramps for a few days after it was put in the first time, but not at all the second time. Overall would absolutely recommend!!!
