    This is the second time that I've had the Mirena IU. The first time was after the birth of my first child (7 yrs ago), and the second after the birth of my second child (2 1/2 yrs ago).

    after having the mirena inserted i experienced cramping and a period that lasted three months. i wanted to have it removed and my doctor decided to put me on estrogen pills to stop the bleeding, which caused tingling in my arms and legs,dizziness, and hot flashes. i have also been losing hair and can not drop weight from having my daughter. i would not recommend this birth control.

    I looked to this website of ratings to get an idea of how people felt about Mirena. I agree that the majority of the reviews are the negative. This teriffied me and I almost didn't go. I started praying about the situtation and reminded myself that everyone is different. So far, I have had not problems. I had the procedure on 8/29. I had mild cramping for a few days and that was it. No o ... Show Full Comment

    EVERY WOMAN IS DIFFERENT! It seems like the majority of postings on here are negative. If you are looking on here to try to help you decide whether or not to use Mirena, you may get scared away- I almost did! I decided to get the Mirena and am thrilled that I did! I was in and out of the doctors office in 10 minutes! It was quick and easy. I only had light bleeding/spotting for 2 days after insert ... Show Full Comment
