Experience

I got this after having a baby due to the implant not agreeing with me. I find my acne is really bad with the Mirena and nothing seems to be helping that. My mood swings can be quite bad when it’s due to be my time of the month. But overall I like have the mirena because I don’t need to worry about not forgetting to take it and it lasts for 5 years but you can get it out before this if you decide too
