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. Somewhere along the line I forgot that not all drugs or birth control work ... Show Full Comment

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.

My sex drive has increased, and I love the freedo ... Show Full Comment
