Our expert says:
Ask for a FSH test - this will give you an idea if you are in menopause or not. Yasmin contains esterogen and progesterone, so I can't understand why they would recommend the Mirena, which is a progesterone only containing IUD, with local effect in the uterus, if you have a esterogen deficiency?
I don't think State hospitals provide Mirena - they only have the normal IUD's.
Not everybody can have it put in in the rooms, if your cervix is very tight you may need anaesthetic as it can be very painful.
Some women get constant spotting on the Mirena, it can also cause cramping, headaches, back pain, painful menstruation, pelvic infections and development of ovarian cysts. However most women find the Mirena very effective with little side effects.
