  • Mine isn't like that, but it is crazy. It's just the hormones. Talk to your doctor about it just to be sure.

  • I had a mirena from 05-07, and the whole time I had one my periods were NEVER normal. I never knew when or if I would get a period. Before the mirena, my periods were like clock work, I could mark on the calendar when I would get it. I got mine removed and DH got a vasectomy, and I am back to normal now. The mirena kept me from getting pregnant, but once I read about all the risks, ect I started getting really freaked out about it and I wanted it out. I'm not necessarily saying it was a bad choice, b/c I could not risk getting pregnant, and at the time I got it for free, so it was my best option. We had just had twins, so I could not risk missing a pill or something.

  • yeah my friend is having a hard time getting pregnant and she got hers removed a year ago, she also got a cyst on her ovary now..i believe i read that can be a side effect with it.
