  • I would have it removed. I had one for 2 years and NEVER had cramps, even when PMSing.

  • i had a friend who had the same problem the first 12-18 months of having minera, but it did get better. I think she said she also had (it was either) really heavy or really light period and it only lasted 3 days or so, though.
    I think it is just a side effect. IF you decide to get it removed but would still like the conenience on the IUD, id try the copper IUD paraguard.
