I had it in for 5 years and loved it! I strongly recommend. The putting in process feels like someone stabbing your uterus, OUCH! I stopped having periods month 3 into it and only spotted a few times within the 5 years. I did develop two ovarian cysts and ultra sounds ruled them nothing to be concerned with and both went away on their own. I sometimes got the "time of the month" mood ... Show Full Comment

I read a lot of scary reviews about the pain and problems after having Mirena IUD put in so, I thought I'd write my own review. It's not nearly as scary as what I had read. I got my Mirena 3 days ago. I've had one child via c-section 8 years ago. Overall the experience was better than I anticipated.

I am on my second Mirena IUD after having the first one in a little over the 5 years that it is effective. I have not had any problems with my Mirena.

Within the 2nd month of having it, my period had completely stopped, no spotting at all. I was a high risk according to my docto ... Show Full Comment

I am giving my review today because reading bad reviews kept me from getting Mirena for over a year!! I have had it now for one month and doing great!! The reviews about the actual procedure scared me to death, but with more knowledge and reading accurate and positive reviews I went for it. The total process took about 15 minutes and the "pain" many talk about will all depend on your tol ... Show Full Comment

DO NOT LET YOUR DOCTOR MAKE YOU THINK YOU HAVE TO KEEP THIS IN!!! IF IT IS NOT WORKING AND YOU HAVE THE SIDE EFFECTS THEY SAY YOU CAN'T HAVE DON'T LISTEN. YOU ARE NOT CRAZY, YOU CAN ABSOLUTELY HAVE SIDE EFFECTS FROM THE IUD. IF YOU WANT IT OUT AND YOUR DOCTOR WONT DO IT, FIND A DOCTOR THAT WILL!
