    I had Mirena inserted 6 weeks ago and it came out today, I like many other women started having side effects which included: chest pain, numbeness in my arms and legs, tired all the time, can't sleep at night, nausea. I really hope I start to feel better soon now that is gone.

    I had the mirena for 2 weeks now. Did not like the procedure, doctor had a difficult time inserting it (I have children) it was very painful and should not have been (I had to be numbed). I have been bleeding since (not spotting), headaches, nauseated, moody and extremely tired since a couple days after it was inserted. I am trying to be patient, but...if the side effects continue- out it will com ... Show Full Comment

    I had it inserted June 30. No problem. No bleeding until July 25, and I thought it was a regular period. But I'm still bleeding 3 weeks later. HOWEVER I am not upset because reading their patient literature prepared me for bleeding for 3 - 6 months. I'm giving it time. That is the one and only side effect so far. Skin is fine, I am LOSING weight because I am dieting and it's wor ... Show Full Comment

    I tried this a few years ago when I was 36 and since I haven't had children it hurt very badly having it put in. It seemed to make me cramp and bleed and hurt a little during sex. I didn't have it long before I asked to have it removed. Having it removed is painless. I'm at a loss for what method to use now because I was on the pill for many years with no problems and then I hit 35 ... Show Full Comment

    I had mirena inserted 2 months ago and I really like it. The initial insertion was painful because I have not had any children. I also almost fainted in the doctor's office within 5 minutes of it being inserted (a little known potential side effect). Other than that first day everything has been great! I have not had a period since I had it put in and my husband doesn't feel it at all. ... Show Full Comment
