Comment:
I had a mirena inserted four months ago after 15 plus years of depo injections. I had been very happy with the depo but was starting to show signs of bone thinning.

I read many reviews and research Mirena before deciding to get it. I knew from the beginning that I wanted to wait a few months before writing a review because it just seems as though people were getting it put in and the next day or the next week were writing reviews (good or bad) without truly experiencing it, so I've had it in 4 months which I think is beyond sufficient time for a decent re ...

Since being on mirena I have had no period which is a plus, but cramping along with weight gain was defnitely a negative. I also experienced more moodiness and loss of sex drive. I absolutely do not like this form of bc and I wouldnt recommend it.

I got the IUD (Mirena) inserted 6/10/14 which was the last day of my period. On 7/16/14 I will be getting a check up to make sure that it hasn't moved.

Thankfully, it only hurt for a few moments but I would recommend taking some Advil about an hour or two before getting it inserted if you're not good w ... Show Full Comment
