Experience

I suffered with chronic back pain and heavy periods and was taking 2-3 days a month off work as I couldn’t walk. Dr suggestes Mirena and it has revolutionised my live. No periods, less back ache and no PMT. The downside is the insertion is painful but it is over very quickly but the removal was more painful and I had what they call a traumatic removal as the thread had got wrapped round the coil so I had to have local anaesthetic and forceps. This means I have had some discomfort for best part of the week following the procedure but I have had another Coil straight back in as for me the pros far far outweight the cons.
