Comment:
I had Mirena inserted about a week ago. I've been on various forms of birth control since I was 15 to control ovarian cysts and heavy menstruation and cramping. I started having migraines with vision changes with the combination pill and was told that I couldn't be on that anymore due to risk of stroke. After talking with my doctor we decided that the Mirena IUC would be the best option fo ... Show Full Comment

The only things I so not like with this form of birth control are; I don't know if or when I will get my menstal cycle and the abdominal pain. Having the IU has also caused me to have an ovarian cyst which is not serious at this time. Otherwise, my husband and I have not had to worry about having another child until we are ready.

Comment:
So far so good! I had been on the pill forever, and after having two children, and at 44, I wanted something that I didn't have to think about all of the time. I would forget to take my pill sometimes for 3 days in a row! It is quite painful to get inserted, like a giant cramp or contraction and lots of pressure-but it was over relatively quickly. My period was fine, but lasted about 3 day ... Show Full Comment

No one, not even my doctor, prepared me for how painful the insertion would be. I literally cried out loud in pain. It was a quick procedure but the strings got caught and my doctor accidentally removed it...so I had to do the whole entire procedure again. But that wasn't anyone's fault I guess. The pain so severe, however that I felt lightheaded for the next few hours and had to go ho ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have had mine in for 3 1//2 years. I've enjoyed not having to take a pill everyday or worry about getting pregnant. However, for the first 6 months, I bled everyday. After that, I've had very few periods at all. I've become prone to get bacterial vaginosis (bacteria in vagina that causes that fishy smell) more often, especially after I have a period. I'm also moodier than I wa ... Show Full Comment
