I have one, and I actually came to this section to post a question about mine...aside from my current situation because this is the first time i've ever been concerned I love my IUD. I have mirena, it was relatively non painful to have put in, and it can stay in up to 5 years. I never experienced any of the side effects personally, one of my friends had cramps for about 4 days after it was placed in and then never had problems. I've had it for 1 year, and it completely stopped my very heavy very irregular period. I previously have been on 2 different versions of the pill, the patch, the ring, and the shot and this is the only thing that has helped my body with my very irritating female issues, and has not had any side effects with me personally. I highly recommend it to anyone I meet. Like i said i'm about to post a question about it, but its not of great concern to me just the first time this has happened and I'm curios.
