I recently had Mirena put in and I was just wondering if anyone has had it and how well it works? I have a 2 month old and I really don't want to get pregnant for a couple of years.

  • I did do reasearch on the internet, read the informational booklets and talked to my dr. I was just wonering about other peoples opinions on it. I would never get anything without doing research first

  • I had a paragard IUD bc i didn't want hormones. My body rejected it says my gyno and it got lodged in my cervix. i think the gyno put it in wrong. really hurts if it gets lodged in your cervix. so demand an ultrasound if it becomes uncomfortable. don't let the doc refuse to believe you and make you live 3 months with an object lodged in your cervix. can you tell i hate my FORMER gyno.
