"Six years ago I underwent hysteroscopy. Due to very heavy periods they wanted to investigate. I had an LA and the pain was bearable for me. But what really shocked me was that, while I was still in position, with my legs in the air, they said they were just going to insert something that would help with my periods. It wasn't really a question. It was a Mirena implant. They passed me the form to sign while I was still reclined which I thought was odd at the time but I trusted them. It was only when I came home that I could actually research what I had agreed to, something I would have done beforehand usually. Thankfully the Mirena has worked well for me but I know that isn't the case for all women. I still can't believe the approach used to get my 'consent', it certainly didn't feel informed."
