I had Mirena for 1 month. I was crabby and my pelvis hurt. There were 3 straight weeks of heavy bleeding so I begged the doctor to take it out. It's only been a couple of days now, but my bleeding has gotten worse after it's removal. I really wanted it to work too. I was excited for fewer/shorter periods and thought free birth control.
