  • no suggestions but heres a fact about Mirena it does not prevent conception what is does is create a hostile environment in the uterus so that the zygote can not implant into the uterus--

  • Some women stop having their periods entirely with it. Some women go years without a period.

    If you are in pain call your doc.

  • I had it. I had no periods at all, and it really helped with my endometriosis. I had bleeding the first little while, and then nothing after that. I miss that.
