  • I had the copper IUD which is the 10 year one and doesn't use hormones so it may have different side effects. I did have very heavy periods with it. After 2 years I started getting very painful ovulation which stopped when I had it removed, but the good part is we wanted to get it removed anyway to try for our next, so it came at an ok time for us.

  • I've the mireana for almost a month now. I couldn't really tell you much now but, I'm still spotting a little, and I just skipped my period.

  • I have mirena. I like it. I am not so moody. And it is nice not to have to worry about taking a pill every day or changing the ring every three weeks. Periods are far and few between.
