    Ugh I had the Mirena for 8 months and absolutely hated it. Had so much problems with it I finally had to give up and take it out :(

    Me too. First one agony during fitting and several hours after. After that no real issues.

    Second one, not only was the fitting absolute agony (and to be honest I handle pain pretty well), but I had to have the 'strings' trimmed a couple of times and then still had issues during sex.

    Had it removed and changed to implant. Just about to have third one fitted and can't see any issues likely. Simple procedure, small cut, whip it out, new one in, job done, good to go!!! Not even a stitch, just a couple of steri-strips.

    I have been told I have a small cervix, don't know how much difference that makes with the coil.

    We are all very different and just have to find what is best for us.

    I got acne basically everywhere and one day after washing my hair it looked like someone would have smeared it with butter, it was horrible. Gave my confidence a big turn, so happy to be on the pill again, they are atleast agreeing with me :)

    I'm on my third implant now. I'm morbidly obese (135kg) so have fat arms and haven't had many problems. the last replacement was tricky as my skin is "mobile" as the nurse put it and the implant had softened and bent a little like they usually do, so we moved the placement of it, but I was given the option for that.

    the Local anesthetic does sting a little, and you do feel pressure still but no pain. Last time I had mine done I bruised and kept the pressure dressing on for a few days, but about three months on its settled and I have no periods!

    My second one was better than my first. My periods totally changed and only have light spotting every 3/4 months. It was a bit of a pain getting it out as tissue had grown around it. I had no option than to have it cut out and stitched. Although I didn't feel a thing.

    Personally the implant has never been an option for me. I don't like the idea of it. The pill is the way for me. With the pill I can stop taking it of it affects me to much (my first brand on pill did that. My new one is good :D) where as the implant is there all the time. Wouldn't be able to get it out quick if I needed to.
