As you all know our bodies are all different. However my experience with the Mirena IUD was horrible. I had it in for 1 year and 3 months after about 2 years on birth control pills i thought it would be a good idea to get it so i dont have to take a pill every day. I thought wrong, i finally had the Mirena taken out this week due to pretty moderate to severe acne that started to appear after 6 mon ... Show Full Comment

I just want to say first that every woman is different and each of our bodies react differently to the different BC methods. I have pretty much had my fair share of trial and error with BC.

It was fine for the first couple months, then started experiencing weird side effects. Aside from the water retention, no sex drive, and acne, I also had increasing memory loss, numbness in my hands, a weird itchy rash on my arms, hair loss/dandruff, and yeast infections. Worked great as a birth control because I wanted to slap my boyfriend everytime he came near me! Doctor decided I'm extreme ... Show Full Comment

After having this BC put in a year and a half ago at first it was good for the first 6months no more periods for a year and a half that i had it in. I just had it removed yesterday because for a year I've had really awful mood swings and became depressed and over time it became worse to the point that I became violent. If I did something violent towards my husband I would feel awful that i did ... Show Full Comment
