    Default Removing the mirena??

    Are GP's able to remove mirena IUD's? I want to have mine removed and not sure if i need an appointment with the GP or the gyno that put it in?

    Default Removing the mirena??

    My gp is putting one in in a couple of weeks, I'm assuming they can take it out too?

    I think it depends on the GP. My GP put it in but he is a practising Ob/gyn. I think if you called the medical centre they would be able to tell you over the phone who could do it for you

    Default Removing the mirena??

    I got mine taken out at the family planning clinic, it's pretty easy to get it out so I don't see why GP's couldn't too.

    Sorry to hijack, but... What's it like getting it out? Does it hurt? Mine's about 4yo now, so have started thinking about having to get a new one.... I'm really nervous about it!

    Default Removing the mirena??

    I had to go to a gyno both times to get mine removed.

    First mirena was inserted prior to having any kids and hurt a lot when it was removed.

    Second mirena I barely felt it come out.

    Yep I didn't feel mine come out. I was having a pap smear at the same time and my obgyn said 'right you're done' and I said 'oh I wanted the mirena out too' and she laughed and said 'it's out' and showed me the kidney dish shed sat it in. I was dumbfounded cos I honestly didn't feel a thing.
