Feel a bit self conscious now haha, my second one didn't even hurt but I was 8 weeks post partum and wasn't fully closed apparently so put it down to that lol!!
lol omg at the loose comment. I am terrified of getting it back in next time as i know it will hurt, the man who done my coil was showing a trainee maybe thats why it took so long? would be ideal if next time was only 5 minutes im terrified but it is simply the best contraception and once a decade is great!

The woman told me everything except that my heart rate and blood pressure might drop (which they did) I remember my heart beating so fast.. hot and clammy and I was shaking was horrible... guess because I didn't know... they hadn't pre warned me!

I've had the Mirena coil and hated it, considering the copper coil now. Otherwise it's condoms till another pregnancy or more likely, trying to get dh to get the snip. Tmi but we don't do it very much ATM with three small kids!

I love my Mirena coil - but I have endometriosis and I need my periods stopped.

I'm having a hysterectomy I hope (I'm on the list but we are emigrating this year)

I'm also on medication that shuts my ovaries down.

Currently we use Spermacid. I have used the foam and the film. Been using it since DS was born 15 months ago. No pregnacy, no symptoms, WAY better than condoms IMHO.

I have the mirena coil. Only felt a pinch on fitting it a few weeks of feeling like my period might start and then nothing. No side effects no period.it's great

I've had the Mirena for the past few years except for ttc pregnancy obviously. It's for medical reasons but I've had no problems. The first time was pre baby and was a bit sore going in and cramps after but the actual insertion was pretty quick. The two I've had post baby have been easier as they told me your cervix never goes fully closed again after.

I had incredibly heavy periods that limited what I could do and apart from a few weeks of spotting after insertion I now don't have any periods. It really has been life changing in that respect.

I was on microgynan before, no problems except forgetting to take the pill

I had the implant put in around a month ago. Despite breastfeeding i have so far had a 12 day period followed by 6 days normal and now a period again. I feel robbed as that was always one of the pros of breadtfeeding for me wahhh.
The pill messed with my mental health but with the implant my mental health is perfect. I suppose i cant win them all will just have to deal with all this unneccesary bleeding which is a contraception in itself!

I decided to get my tubes tied during the c-section of my last baby. My surgeon was a gem and made sure to keep a good blood supply to my ovaries.

Edit: after this I suddenly started a period on 28th February it stopped yesterday 13th March!!! NOT Happy!

EDIT: I am still bleeding heavily (21-03-2017) so I went to my GP yesterday and I am getting it removed on 4th April

Also pretty sure it is making me blue and moody

I am contemplating getting it removed and getting the mini pill again if anything tbh
