I have been in extreme pain from the frist day the mirena was put in {April 21, 2008}. I have not been at all satisfied .

I was aware of no side effects but I have had major hair loss but I wasn't aware of why, but it was a long bloody procedure to put it in. If I hadn't trusted my doctor so much I would have stopped her in the middle. She had to try a few times and it took over half an hour as she said the opening to my cervix is tiny tiny. Also, I had it put in when I was in a long-term relationship and we ... Show Full Comment

31 year old mom of two, a 6 yr old girl and a 1 year old boy. Had my Mirena inserted in Feb/08.

No cramping, but feel a little nauseous and some hair thinning...Feel like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard ... Show Full Comment

The IUD has been great for preventing pregnancy and it's nice not having a period, but I too have lost a lot of my hair and it seems to be looking worse all the time. Also, after I had my daughter, I ... Show Full Comment

I had Mirena inserted over 2 months ago. The insertion was easy, just minor discomfort; however, I have been bleeding almost non-stop since that day. There have been 2 days that I have not bled. And I have zero sex drive. Unfortunately my insurance did not cover this so I am stuck paying it off for the next 8 months. So I'm going to try and suck it up until then.
