Experience

Mirena has given me a lot of peace of mind. The worst thing is that my periods are light, but really long and drawn-out, lasting ~two weeks or more. I am almost always spotting, and my boyfriend and I have just had to get used to slightly bloody sex. It’s either that, or going back to condoms because I hate the pill.
