*** Insertion*** This was EXTREMELY PAINFUL to have inserted. I've never had children before, perhaps that was a factor. The entire procedure lasted about 4 or 5 minutes and it was the single most painful experience of my life to date. I question whether or not I EVER want to have children.

Sex is very painful to me and my husband. He says it feels lik ... Show Full Comment

I wish I never used mirena. I got it put in 6 weeks after I had my daughter, I was never advised on what all the side effects were. It is over 3 yrs later & I have noticed a alot of hair loss, weight gain and facial hair. I am having mine removed to more and am hoping the side affects are reversable.

I loved using Mirena. I didn't have my period very often and when I did it was very light (I could use a mini pad). I felt nothing and didn't have to worry about birth control.

My partner does feels something poking him but nothing major, and sex drive i ... Show Full Comment
