    I have had the Mirena for close to 3 1/2 years and I think its great. I got it put in 3 months after my son was born.

    I had this put in on January 8 of this year; I thought that it would be fine and I wouldn't have to worry about getting pregnant again and taking a pill everyday. Sinc inserted, I have had shooting pain; cramps that make it unbearable to move and sleep at times. I have experienced dizziness and a period that won't go away. I definitely think that it isn't for everyone and it's not ... Show Full Comment
