I had it inserted June 30. No problem. No bleeding until July 25, and I thought it was a regular period. But I'm still bleeding 3 weeks later. HOWEVER I am not upset because reading their patient literature prepared me for bleeding for 3 - 6 months. I'm giving it time. That is the one and only side effect so far. Skin is fine, I am LOSING weight because I am dieting and it's wor ... Show Full Comment

I tried this a few years ago when I was 36 and since I haven't had children it hurt very badly having it put in. It seemed to make me cramp and bleed and hurt a little during sex. I didn't have it long before I asked to have it removed. Having it removed is painless. I'm at a loss for what method to use now because I was on the pill for many years with no problems and then I hit 35 ... Show Full Comment

I have not had a period since I had it put in and my husband doesn't feel it at all. ... Show Full Comment

I had this for 8 months after 2 months I began to have the headaches, joint pain/stiffness, bleeding EVERY TIME after intercourse (the only bleeding I had ever), mood swings, and a few more minor side effects. I had it removed less than 3 weeks ago and feel like I did before I had used the Mirena. I felt better within 2 days but it did take 4 visits to the OBGYN to get it removed. I had to call in ...
