Hi! I'm a 20 year old college student who's never had kids & I opted to get Mirena due to horrible side effects from oral contraceptives! I just wanted to share my story: Due to a hard cervix, low pain tolerance, and a tendency to faint, my Mirena had to be placed under anesthesia. My doctor attempted to place it in her office, but it was just too painful! Anyone who has a decent pa ... Show Full Comment

I got on Lorena after my first pregnancy. Everything seemed ok and I never got pregnant while using themed. I started to feel moody after I went off my periods each month. A week after my period I felt as if I was coming on again. Towards the end when I had been on the same insert for about 3 1/2yrs I did not seem to have a libido. I felt these strange internal pains in my vagina. I finally reques ... Show Full Comment

Being off the pill, I couldn't handle my periods and had bad acne. I have NO children, I am 27 yrs old. I was VERY hesitant since there are negative reviews everywhere about mirena. I promised myself I would com ... Show Full Comment

I did not have such a great experience with Mirena. I had it inserted 5 years ago (in 2009) because I did not want any children. My doctor didn't want to perform a permanent procedure because he thought I would change my mind, so I wanted to go with the next thing to permanent and it just so happened to be the Mirena. Insertion wasn't any trouble. It was somewhat painful, but nothing t ... Show Full Comment

I had mirena for 3 years. The first couple of months were fine. I bled for about 4 months straight. As far as not getting pregnant, it worked really well. I never had any issues. For the last year, my hair started falling out, i gained about 25lbs and was extremely moody. I had no sex drive, and was very very unhappy with myself. Finally my hair was so thin and I couldnt figure out why, so I star ... Show Full Comment
