I am glad to hear that you got Mirena removed.
I agree with Mamaj and others that your doctor is not taking your concerns seriously by recommending the mini-pill.
My doctor tried the same thing, but I was determined not to have any more hormones for at least six months and told her so.
Today I am 10 months post and haven't felt this good since before the IUD.
I would say no to the mini pill for the exact reason you stated--progestin only--it's just swapping mode of release. Hang on for the ups and downs that come with ridding your body of the Mirena--it is well worth it. Use this forum for support and let us know how you are doing.
Wishing you wellness,
