    I became pregnant before my third child was even 1 yr. Then I miscarried. I didn't want to have to go through with that again since I was nearing my 40th birthday. After talking with my doctor about my options I had the Mirena inserted. It has been one of the best decisions that I have ever made. Yes, there was a little pinch when inserting but nothing more. And, no more periods. I will be hav ... Show Full Comment

    I'm 25, mother of one. I had the mirena inserted at my 6 wk check-up in May. My doc told me I'd feel 3 cramps.. felt 2 but nothing worse than a regular period style cramp. Spotting for a couple months on and off.. rarely needed a liner for it even. Have had 2 three day periods so far. My husband doesn't feel it or the strings and I don't feel it. I love not having to take any birth ... Show Full Comment

    This is the second Mirena IUD I have had and I am 25. The first one I had taken out after two years due to unrelated problems. This time I had it put in in April due to a period that went for 25 days. The first insertion at 19 and no births, was awful and I cramped for 24 hours. This time it was nothing. My period is now gone, not even spotting. The only problem this time is I am shedding a l ... Show Full Comment

    I have had mirena for 3 years and it is amazing. I actually have had no mensus since insertion and forget I even have it. My husband doesn't feel a thing and I can testify it is effective. I have 2 more years and plan on another insertion of mirena which upon initial insertion really did not hurt. Thank you makers of Mirena.
