Experience

I’ve really enjoyed having Mirena, the IUS, having been on the COCP for 7 years. Although having it put in was slightly uncomfortable it was done very quickly (I haven’t had any children or had a gynae problems so have never had a speculum). Since having it, my periods have been VERY light, only needing a panty liner and I haven’t had any period pains at all – very happy ?? it’s in for 5 years and I plan to get another afterwards
