Experience

Absolute life changer. I have not had a proper period since I got it put in. Before, I was on the combined pill and very depressed and was quite a bit heavier. I changed to the mirena and I did not try to diet or exercise excessively but my weight settled to being healthy and I stopped having extreme mood swings and feeling tearful all the time since changing. Have loved it. It was painful to get in, I’m not going to lie about that but 10 mins of pain for 5 years no period cramp pain, no periods themselves, no excessive crying and much better emotional stability, I’d say it is worth it!
