After 18 months of having the Mirena I have decided to get it out.
It just hasn't worked for me, I had it because of wanting to cease my periods not contraception as DH has vasectomy but I am still spotting once a month with the occasionally unexpected gushes too and cramping.
I am worried about getting it removed as some say you bleed very heavily for weeks and compare it to after birth bleeding.
I have accepted the spotting etc as part of life but know I really should get it removed.
Can anyone offer up their experiences with removal of the Mirena and what I might be up against - good and bad?
I am reading that the Mirena can be blamed for a few side effects - loss of sex drive, discharge to name a few and now I am wondering if this is the same in my case of just coincidences.
