Experience

Over three years ago came off the progesterone only pill after finding my mood was really low and having incredibly irregular periods. I went onto the Mirena coil which for me has been the best thing ever! It took 6 months to settle, before that I was having irregular periods and cramps but once it settled it was all fine. I don’t have periods anymore just the occasional spotting once every 2 months and the occasional cramps which tie in around the same time each month.
