I thought this form of birth control was perfect. I had the mirena in for almost 3 years. I felt a little discomfort when it was put in however the pain was gone before the doctor told me it was over. I never noticed it again.

Comment:
I have spent sometime today reading over the previous reviews so I figured I would throw in my 2 cents as well. I had mirena inserted about a month ago. I was very nervous and even cancelled my original appointment because of the uncertainty. My biggest mistake was reading all the negative reviews of this birth control.

I have had almost every side effect of this drug, without the cancer part. I bleed almost every day. There is maybe a week out of the month that I dont. I have discharge all the time(no infection tho). Headaches, cramps, stomach problems, depression, SEVERE drop in libido(sex makes me want to vomit right now), fatigue, weight gain, everything.

Comment:
I only had my Mirena put in a few weeks ago, but so far, I have nothing bad to say. My youngest is 1 1/2, and we decided we didn't want another child too soon. I was a little uncomfortable during the insertion, and afterwards I had mild cramping. The cramping persisted for the next 4 or 5 days, with very light bleeding. That's been it. My sex drive has increased, and I love the freedo ... Show Full Comment
