Glad yours is working for you OP. I'm currently sat in a waiting room ready for my removal appointment. Flipping thing has caused me no end of trouble for 3 months and now it's coming out 😁

Oh dear although I must admit he did tell me 6 to 12 months guess I must just be lucky. Hope all goes well for you. It's no fun 😟

Glad it worked for you! Mine worked too initially then after causing no end of grief it had to go. Am now awaiting (very much hoping for) a hysterectomy.

I'm the same as My Beloved. I've had two over about 6 years but failed for me.

Now waiting for a hysterectomy

I got pregnant on the mirena coil so wouldn't have it again (and had breast cancer last year so have been strongly advised against it) but I know lots of people who have been happy with it.

Horses for courses and all that... smile

I've had mine for 7 months and I'm really happy with it. Had some weird ovary pains for a couple of months but very settled now, almost no period just a day or so, or light spotting (I didn't have them on the pill either so my body seems to just respond that way)
