i think that mirena is working great for me, i was spotting for about a week and a half afterwards. after just light spotting once a month for about 3 days. i love the fact that i don't have to worry about popping a pill everyday or having my husband use a condom. i absolutley recommend mirena for everyone but just know that everyone is different.

Sheer regret!! I absolutely wish I would've never considered Mirena as an option. It's been a year since insertion & I've gained about 40 lbs, developed acne (at 29 yrs old!), my menstrual cycle has completely stopped, and my desire to have sex is now non-existent. Definitely dizzy, decreased energy, and excessive sweating. Can't wait to have it removed!!!

I am having it remo ... Show Full Comment
