    I had mine inserted about 4 months ago, I haven't been on bc in 7 years b/c I hated how it made me feel, so after 2 (planned) children I didn't want to take any chances so I opted for Mirena. I like it okay I haven't exp. the same probs I had with the pill. However, my predictable 6 day, heavy period, has gotten lighter but sometimes it is 3 days sometimes 8, the first 3 weeks I didn ...

    To Pauline, you were asking for some help or advice. This is really something that you will have to try for yourself.

    The insertion was extremly painfull, i almost fainted. Its being 7 months since i had it inserted and for the fist 4 months i was bleeding non-stop now is on and off but a little lighter. What really drive me insane is the horrible cramps and the lower back pains. I like the fact that i dont have to worry about getting pregnant but i don't know if is really worth it.

    I've had the mirena for approx 2 years. I have experienced terrible lower back pain on and off for 2 years. It has just occurred to me that it might be the IUD. Has anyone else experienced this??? I have a gyne appt. in 2 weeks, I might have it removed, but I don't want my periods back. I haven't had any hair loss or weight gain, but the back pain is awful.

    I have been having a problem with bleeding every time I have sex and it has become an issue. I have had the Mirena in for almost 5 yrs. I have seen my doctor about it and she said I shouldn't worry about it.How can I be with someone when I bleed every time?? I was wondering if anyone else has the same problem??? HELP
