Experience

Had the Mirena Coil in for 4 years with no issues whatsoever, definitely the best contraception I’ve ever had, best decision I ever made. However, the last month or so, I had quite a bit of random bleeding. After a chat with the Practice Nurse at my GP Surgery, some swabs to check I was healthy ‘down there’, we concluded that my coil was coming to the end of its life so I had it removed. As I said, I never had an issue with the Coil. You forget it’s there, and that’s the best thing about it! Would definitely get it again
