I had the Mirena put it 14 months ago 6 weeks after my 1st daughter was born. I only felt a small pressure during the insertion. My period was normal during the first 3 months.

I've only had the IUD in place for just over a week. The insert was a bit painful, although uncomfortable is a more accurate description. I cramped considerably for 2 days.

As of now, I am quite ... Show Full Comment

I am 29 years old and a mother of one. After having my son I was concerned about which birth control to take seeing as I was breast feeding.
