    Insertion was very easy for me. Quick pain and short cramping at the doctors office but I was fine within hours. I had been on continuous birth control before Mirena, so I already had no monthly period and that continued with Mirena. The only downfall of Mirena was too great to ignore. Severe weight gain.

    I was about 21 when I first got Mirena. No children. Insertion was very painful for me. It did take me longer, maybe about 10-15 minutes. The pain lasted a few days, and I've had trouble ever since. For the first couple of years, my cramps would be horrible and last maybe 2 weeks. The bleeding lasted a while for the first couple of months, but after that, it didn't last long (maybe 3 days) ... Show Full Comment

    After inserting bleeding for 3 months is normal. I bleeded for 7 months and after checking with doctor I was put on contraceptive pills to stop bleeding which didn't work but instead got terrible mood swings. I have an appointment to have it removed. Can't wait to get back normal

    Well I'm not pregnant so it fulfilled its purpose, but at the same time my periods were 7-10 days long. They were light but I'm like wth my period is longer than when I wasn't on birth control. I got it towards the end of 2014. When I first got it my period was coming on every 2 weeks. Then after a doctors visit everything was fine. Until last week my period was 7 days long, went off, ...

    I am 42 and am 2 years into my 2nd Mirena. I have an appt to have it removed in 4 days and can't wait. I never put two and two together until speaking to an endocrinologist and her recommending removal and after reading all of these reviews I agree with my dr. that it has been the cause of my obesity, mood swings, tiredness and growth of facial hair. I pray I will feel normal again after remov ... Show Full Comment
