Our expert says:
1. I think the Mirena would be a good choice for you, though everyone is different. The commonest side effect is irregular spotting. This can occur with Depo as well though.
2. It is very uncommon for the Mirena to fall out. Remember that people tend to report problems but not say anything if they are happy. Once a month is usually often enough to check the strings.
3. There is a long return to fertility with Depo and this can be a problem. This would not be the case with the mirena.
4. It is not possible to predict how you will react to the Mirena. Your non-existent periods are probably related to the Depo.
5. I have not personally seen anyone fall pregnant with the Mirena, but there is a reported failure rate of about 3 in 1000, which is very low. Google Mirena if you want more information.
