Horrific. Gynacologist suggested Mirena coil for heavy periods and bad PMS as couldn't take Pill due to hormone sensitivity. Coil fine at fitting, very strong stomach pain which was to be expected. However it felt like my kidneys had been punched due to pain. The back pain was so severe it went all the way down my legs and I couldn't sit/ stnd or lie down without wincing. After 7 days I had coil removed, I was told it had dropped down. Three months later I am still recieving physio to alleviate back pain cause muscule trauma from the coil.

I wanted to try something different to the Pill and the coil came highly recommended. However, getting it inserted was horrifically painful, the doctor gave no guidance on which coil would be best, leaving me to choose. Over the course of a year, I've experienced low mood, rapid weight gain, depression and pain. The only positives have been convenience and stopping of periods.

I bled for 6 months after the very painful insertion. My period then stopped for 5 months, and I was bleeding heavily for the last 3 months. However, I did not gain weight, get acne or have any changes to my mood. Shame about the bleeding because it would've been perfect!
