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

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.

Satisfied with the ease and reliability. However the mood swings, depression, cramping, acne and weight gain are too much. I have only had it for 6 months and I will be having it taken out next week.
