I had my mirena removed today and just wanted to share my experience in case anyone is thinking about having it out and worried about the pain. It was not half as bad as I expected. The speculum hurt more than the removal! Just a short, sharp pinching feeling and it was out. I'm feeling quite sore and swollen at the moment but I'm sure that will go down quickly.
I had it removed because my endo has come back over the last few months which tells me the mirena isn't doing its job in preventing the endo. So while I'm waiting to see my new gynaecologist, I thought I'd have it out. I also gained a tonne of weight on it and my skin is horrid. Additionally, I didn't really want it put in in the first place but I was kinda of steam-rollered by my surgeon.
Anyway, feel free to ask any questions. Sending you all love x
