Has anyone used/using Mirena?

I ask because I am having some really bad side effects from it...not to mention I had to take it out last year because I got pregnant! This is not a question to bad mouth the product I think it is great if you can use it.

I am just wondering though because I have had a weird side effect equal to PID (constant pain...they keep saying its probably just a chronic UTI but it feels more like labor pains!) but the doctors cannot figure out what it is or do not want to figure it out.

  • Yeah...I got pregnant with the Mirena and the nuvaring in because my former ob/gyn did not want to take it out without a back up method in place and since it was only in for 6months he act like it was a waste of money (my pain was not a good enough reason!)...I guess she was meant to be here!

  • I had it for a couple of years. Once I FINALLY got past the spotting I loved it and did not have any other issues with it EXCEPT if slid out two and a half years in. So now I am s.o.l. because insurance will not pay for another one because they are supposed to last five years. My attitude is that it was not my fault it came out and another one should be covered but they disagree. Luckily a few months after I got mirena my Husband got snipped.
