Hooray my mirena has just fallen out I'm so glad.
Bloody thing. Strangely enough I had an appt to discuss having it taken out , but Iv had such a bad hormone related migraine that I had to cancel it.
It's done nothing for 9 months apart from make me depressed, fat & yeti looking.
Good riddance to the implement of misery!!

Nice one! Happy for you smile wish mine had fallen out, I had to have a general anaesthetic to get it out!

I have heard so many bad reviews about them that I will never have one fitted no matter how hard my GP's surgery tries to push them.

Queen that sounds awful ... Was it worse having it out than put in ?

The female Dr at the family planning clinic was AWFUL to me when I insisted having mine taken out after 18 months of misery, in fact she said I'd be back there "pregnant by the end of the year" shock

The constant itching disappeared immediately, I no longer spotted and they finally sorted out my awful periods properly instead!

Sorry fblush I hated mine, I hated it so much I Ebayed some nice clothes to go private and get a very understanding gynaecologist to listen to me and take the bloody thing out.

Topseyt, just to counter balance - im on my 2nd (first replaced after 5 years) & I love it. Barely any periods & no period pain at all & not fallen pregnant by accident, so I'm assuming it works! Those of my friends who have had it, have had very positive experiences too.

Op, glad you're sorted though as I've read the horror stories too & it sounds awful if it doesn't agree with you.

Without help?!

Congratulations anyway. They're dreadful things.

I had a female GP try to brow beat me into having one of these just yesterday.

I told her I'd heard nothing but awful things (thank you MN) about them and that I was perfectly happy with the pill I take that I KNOW works for me and doesn't give my any shitty side effects.

She wasn't impressed. Will definitely be forcefully declining next time she tries.

Glad you're rid of it OP flowers.

Random how unprofessional !!

NoMudNoLotus Wed 21-Dec-16 23:34:11

Ahhh thankyou ladies for understanding.

I have felt so low since being on it and I put on loads of weight which made me feel even lower.

I just want to feel human again !

NoMudNoLotus Wed 21-Dec-16 23:35:10

I have to say, that happening is my best Christmas present !

Manumission Wed 21-Dec-16 23:35:36

, I hated it so much I Ebayed

Mad Inthought you were going to say you eBayed it! grin

MadHattersWineParty Wed 21-Dec-16 23:37:17

fgrin I only glanced at it to make sure it was outside of my body then told the nurse to incinerate it. She did ask if I wanted it back in a little pot confused

NoMudNoLotus Wed 21-Dec-16 23:40:03

Madhatter I was ready to yank the thing out myself but then the gods must have been watching down !

MadHattersWineParty Wed 21-Dec-16 23:42:05

They must have been NoMud. Praise be!

Many times I contemplated a bottle of vodka, the bath and some long tweezers. That thing drove me mad, the pain and the bloating! Horrid.

ageingrunner Wed 21-Dec-16 23:46:28

The gp was trying to encourage me to have one. I asked her whether they would take it out if I asked them to, or whether they would tell me to keep it and let it settle. She looked embarrassed and didn't answer 😳

I'm so glad I stuck to my guns in turning it down (time and time again) at the GP. What's their obsession with it? They must have a target they need to make for migrating women from the pill to the Mirena cook!

MossytheMouse Thu 22-Dec-16 00:11:19

I have one and have been lucky. It's the only hormonal contraceptive that agrees with me. Though I would love to know why GPs are sooo pushy with it?

Can I ask how it came out? Did it just fall out by itself with no help? It must be a great relief to you anyway

MadHattersWineParty Thu 22-Dec-16 00:12:29

I read that the GPs can become 'Mirena trained' but to maintain this level of training, they have to fit 6 Mirenas in a month.

ageingrunner Thu 22-Dec-16 00:21:48

Do they get paid for it? I.e. A CQUIN or whatever it's called?

IhatchedaSnorlax Thu 22-Dec-16 00:26:47

I never had the hard sell with it at all, In fact I had to ask for it? confused

MossytheMouse Thu 22-Dec-16 00:50:23

That's interesting madhatter but why then are they so reluctant to take them out if asked?

QueenOfTheSardines Thu 22-Dec-16 08:28:07

Nomud in was worse than out as I was unconscious for out! The strings had gone awol so no other way to get at it. It was v bad having it in as they said it was suitable as I've had 2 kids but due to birth circs I've only gone a little into early labour once. So cervix has never been dilated or had a baby through. Consultant said doc must have had "a hell of a job" getting it in after looking at cervix for strings and having a poke around. Said he felt v sorry must have been awful. Yes, it wasn't pleasant!
