I have had it for almost 2 years now. I absolutely love it, no problems or pregnancies so far. I have shorter, lighter periods. No cramping or PMS what-so-ever. I spotted lightly for 6 months after it was placed, a panty liner took care of it. after that my periods regulated out. I had very minor cramping the day it was placed, the doctor will tell you to take some Ibuprofen before you come in to lessen the cramps.
You are going to hear both positive && negative stories about this, b/c just like with any other form of birth control, it's not right for everyone.
You can go to www.mirena-us.com to look at the pros && cons for yourself.
My advice is to get it && see how it works for you. You can always have it removed if it causes any problems.
