Mirena coil was brilliant no periods no nothing until I had it taken out… wow then I had what I’ve been heard as the Mirena crash… and I’ve never been the same since… I didn’t know who I was more… still don’t… doctors said it couldn’t be cps of the coil taken out but it was my own hormones has been suppressed for that long when o had to deal with them myself my mind went crazy anxiety, depression felt suicidal
