Experience

Having no past history of depression or anxiety the 6months I had the mirena were horrid. I wasn’t myself at all, had this inner rage, no patience with my 3 children, lost my sense of humour, didn’t want to even hug my husband. I got it removed when I made the connection which took months as apparently the hormonal dose is too low to affect mood?! Within 2 days I was laughing with my husband again and am actually looking forward to the day/week ahead or singing while tidying up after the kids instead of shouting at them. I cannot believe it could have this effect and it needs to be spoken about far more
