I promise an update after three months. I love mirena! It takes a bit for your body to adjust but my periods are light and I'm done with the crappy spotting phase (which lasts a while but it's worth waiting it out!). I was on the pill for five years before this and I didn't think I would care about not taking a pill. I was wrong! It's so freeing not thinking about your birth contro ... Show Full Comment

Ok ladies it IS NOT that bad. Go when Aunt Flo comes to town and take a deep breath. My insertion was not bad at all. I went three days after my period ended took no meds and it honestly hurt less then a pap. The most uncomfortable part is getting the speculum shoved in my vagina. I mean who really enjoys that right. I am not wonder woman I had an epidural when I had my baby. That was almost 2 yea ... Show Full Comment

I'm 27 years old and have had a love hate relationship with birth control since my teens. I've tried the pill, then decided to be off of BC for a significant amount of years due to the way the pill made me feel. I decided 4 months ago to try depo shot after a scare with my boyfriend. WORST decision. I had the worst mood swings, didn't feel like myself, and gained weight. Spotting was c ... Show Full Comment

Before I started Mirena I was on Depo Provera shots. I decided to switch because of the bone-density concerns. My sister and I both switched at the same time and both chose Mirena. When the IUD was inserted for her, she had SEVERE pain (I've never seen her in that much pain) and bled for an extended period of time. However, mine was uncomfortable and kept me from being active for a few days, b ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I 1st got the IUD installed Jan 9th 2015 . It was very uncomfortable during installation but only for a few seconds. Many women experience cramping or spotting after but I didn't. The ONLY thing I didn't like about it was when I got my 1st period it lasted for about 24 days. It was very annoying and I didn't consider having it removed. But the doctor suggested that I wait it out and I ... Show Full Comment
