Experience

This was put in after I had an abortion upon the doctors recommendation. I have heard good things about mirena and so I was thinking about getting it anyway – having previously been on the single hormone pill and getting on very well with it. However, this implant has been agony. I have cramping and bleeding on and off constantly and it seems to be bought on by heavy exercise and sex which is really not ideal! I wonder if I should get it removed …
