    I've had the Mirena IUD in for over a year now. No periods.....ever. No cramping, bleeding, no pills to have to remember to take. It's great! The convenience and ease of use is amazing.

I am still debating should I hav ... Show Full Comment

I haven't noticed anything else happening just yet but like I said it's only been a day. I think everyone reacts to things differently, I was on the shot for over 2 years and had the worst time with it as far as weight and mood changes, so maybe this B ... Show Full Comment
