  • i personally have not had it, don't like the idea of it personal opinion...however my best friend had one put in after the birth of her baby boy in march and by november she had it out, she had anxiety attacks, cramping, mood swings and rapid heartbeat, she called the company and they said that is the #1 reason people are calling about it anxiety attacks.

  • I have had the mirena since june 2008 and absolutely love it. I haven't had any problems with it nor do I get any periods. I did go through a period of about 2 months that I had some side effects but its normal for the first 6 months to experience things. After the 6 months you shouldn't have any side effects at all.
