    *** Insertion*** This was EXTREMELY PAINFUL to have inserted. I've never had children before, perhaps that was a factor. The entire procedure lasted about 4 or 5 minutes and it was the single most painful experience of my life to date. I question whether or not I EVER want to have children. I was screaming on the table, broke out in sweats, almost start hyper ventilating, wanted to puke, fein ... Show Full Comment

    Ever since the first day my doctor inserted it, I have had nothing but pain. I no longer have a sexdrive, even when I'm having intercourse with my husband. I haven't had a period in a little over a year(I've had mirena for about 3 years now). No one told me that overian cysts could occur, I believe I've had quite a few. Sex is very painful to me and my husband. He says it feels lik ... Show Full Comment

    I wish I never used mirena. I got it put in 6 weeks after I had my daughter, I was never advised on what all the side effects were. It is over 3 yrs later & I have noticed a alot of hair loss, weight gain and facial hair. I am having mine removed to more and am hoping the side affects are reversable.

    I loved using Mirena. I didn't have my period very often and when I did it was very light (I could use a mini pad). I felt nothing and didn't have to worry about birth control.

    I've had mines for about nine months now, it hurt a little when it was inserted, and the cramping was a little severe. I love that i don't have to be worrying about getting pregnant or taking a pill, my periods have gotten lighter but more painfully, i cramp a lot usually 1 to 2 weeks before and during my period. My partner does feels something poking him but nothing major, and sex drive i ... Show Full Comment
