    Got the mirena about 19 months ago and since have experienced acne- I'm 31 not liking it, also the worst part is Ive noticed my pores have gotten huge. Is it possible it could be aging my skin. My skin was not like this before I had it installed. Also my eyes have been bugging me and are often dry. These problems only started since I've had it put in.

    i think that mirena is working great for me, i was spotting for about a week and a half afterwards. after just light spotting once a month for about 3 days. i love the fact that i don't have to worry about popping a pill everyday or having my husband use a condom. i absolutley recommend mirena for everyone but just know that everyone is different.
