Incredibly painful insertion (I crushed my shin bone mountain biking last week and one of my first thoughts was that the IUD insertion was still worse), cramps lasted for a week, and then two weeks after insertion, I started getting nauseous every day and also got headaches. So wish this had worked out for me, as I've tried the copper IUD and implanon with similarly bad results, but alas, I ... Show Full Comment

I am not sure if anyone will even see this review, but if it helps just one person I will be happy! I went to my OB seeking options for birth control that did not contain estrogen. I am on another medication and if estrogen is taken with it, it lowers my levels of the much more important medication. So my OB suggested a progesterone only form of birth control and began to rave about how great Mire ... Show Full Comment

Suddenly July 2nd I got hit with a panic attack, and suffered major anxiety and depression for the next few days. I felt just off, like something was wrong and had a lot of irrational thoughts in my head that I co ... Show Full Comment

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
