    I may be on the brink of menopause anyway, but after I got my Mirena, my periods stopped completely which has been nice after many years of heavy bleeding. I have had no other side-effects. I previously had a Paragard for 13 years and was also very happy with it, except for the heavy periods.

    I am a 31 year old Mom of 2, ages 6 and 4.I had Mirena inserted in October 2007. I got my periods regularly until April 2008 and then they went away completely. I still experience a mild cramping when I would normally get my period, and also the mood swings.

    I just had Mirena inserted 2 days ago. I am 35 years old and have never been pregnant. I had been on the pill since since I was 17 years old with no problems but wanted something with no upkeep (no pill to take daily, no refills). I was on my period for the procedure and it was EXTREMELY painful. Was not just slightly more uncomfortable than a pap as my doctor told me it it would be. Measuri ... Show Full Comment
