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 just got mirena put in abt a month ago. So many people have said how bad it hurt, I've never had kids, the dr used numbing shots (like the dentists uses) and it was no worse than a pap smear.
