Subbing. I also wanted to ask if a gp can put it in? My gp gave me a referral to a special clinic but I still haven't made the appointment yet...

I got mine put in in the GP surgery. Took less than 10 minutes. I found it quiet painful and I also found the cramping in the first 12 hours after insertion quiet bad. And I'm no wuss I had a homebirth and a episiotomy with no local!
So far I haven't stopped bleeding since I've had it inserted about 2 months ago. I have been very moody which I think is improving. No other side effects,
I am a small woman (46kg) and apparently I get 2.5 x the dose of a woman of 80kg so maybe that's why I have felt mood changes.
I think overall it's a great choice if it agrees with you.

The mirena still has hormones in it so if you're at risk of blood clots I'd go something hormone free. I got a copper iud (same as mirena but no hormones) because hormone contraception sends me crazy.

Mirena really effected my moods, made me angry and short tempered. I couldn't wait the whole three months and had it out after5weeks. I'm sensitive to all hormonal contraceptives though.
