  • Well the Mirena is a soft flexible implanted device. I have never had a problem with it cutting my husband, nor have I heard of that. I happen to love mine. If you would like more personal info about it, please feel free to PM me.

  • Look into the way Mirena works as a birth control as well. It's not like the pill, which prevents ovulation which prevents pregnancy. It's an abortive form of birth control. It discharges the eggs from your body - fertilized or not. So it can terminate pregnancy, which the pill will not do if you happen to get pregnant. Talk to your OB about it. I was interested until I talked to mine and found all this out, then I was just disgusted. Obvisously the happy go lucky commercials do not advertise this information.

  • I have never had an issue with my Mirena, my husband has never felt it either.

  • Why would your husband feel it? It's planed inside the Uterus. You may want to visit the GYN and make sure it's not dropping out.
