Sheer regret!! I absolutely wish I would've never considered Mirena as an option. It's been a year since insertion & I've gained about 40 lbs, developed acne (at 29 yrs old!), my menstrual cycle has completely stopped, and my desire to have sex is now non-existent. Definitely dizzy, decreased energy, and excessive sweating. Can't wait to have it removed!!!

I was on the pill for 10+ yrs, but after my son was born experienced high blood pressure, so I then switched to the copper IUD - no hormones - so no moodiness or weight gain, but the heavy bleeding was not fun. After my second son was born, on the recommendation of my best friend, an OB-GYN nurse, I tried Mirena. Insertion was a non-event, just relax and tak ... Show Full Comment
