  • I am on my second Mirena and I love it. I have had no problems with it at all. It is a little uncomfortable to have put in (not horrible- but you feel crampy) and then I did spot for a while which is common. But once in, I rarely get a period and if I do get one- it's about one day long. No cramps- nothing. And I don't have to remember to take a pill or change a patch. It's just there, no problems. I have had no issues or weight gain from it! I would really recommend it!

  • i have mirena as well. i had it put in about 8W after i had my son. it was great. since i am still breastfeeding i havent had a period at all. i did have some light spotting but nothing that required a pad. i havent noticed a change in my milk supply.
