have you tried regular oral low dose contraceptive pills? these might help you regulate your periods and help your symptoms.

no i havet tired anything with 18 years pill never suited me my peroids are not irregular or heavy its the mood swings that i need to sort out

I see

I would talk to your doctor about medications such as citalopram (Celexa) or fluoxetine (prozac) which over time most likely will help your mood swing symptoms better than mirena coil
