I have been using Mirena for 15 months now and just LOVE IT! My periods have been drastically reduced to little flow and very mild cramps.

People at work and in my family have been questioning why I look so pale and sick all the time and this is the only thing I can think of that would be causing me to look sick all the time. I feel sick a ... Show Full Comment
