Experience

I got the mirena coil after coming off the pill as it affected my mood negatively. I definitely feel a lot better emotionally. Its great not having to think about contraception! The insertion is not fun but I would say research how you might feel, take the day off work and get someone to drive you home! You’ll get through that day then hopefully the cramps will subside like mine did. The right contraception for me so far
