  • I had mine for almost 2 years. The discharge did go down- but my sex drive was totally gone. I had it taken out the beginning of June and got preg 1-2 days later. . . seriously. I liked it, but didn't like it. I dont know if I'll get it again after this birth. Having it taken out was very easy (not at all like having it put in).

  • Yes, among others. I have had it almost 5 yrs. now and I have had to wear pantiliners the whole time, and never had that problem before. It will not go away. I am getting mine out in Oct. and I won't be getting another one. I am thinking of a copper iud(paragard) because I don't want hormones. Search the posts for Mirena, there is a good one about the side affects of Mirena.

  • I did for a while, not so much anymore. (got my mirena in oct '08). I have noticed that while jogging or working out that I get this discharge but not really any other time.
