Experience

The Mirena has been great for me. I’ve had it for 5 years, without a period which has been bliss and no negative side effects as far as I can tell. It did hurt a bit getting it put in but I took some painkillers before my appointment which did the trick! Would definitely recommend to anyone, especially those who have had trouble with the pill!
