  • I had it before, I did not gain any weight, and my experience was pretty good, although Hubby had a problem with the strings poking the head of his penis. After almost a year of having it I started having stomach pains, and my doctor wasnt sure if it was because of the mirena, or if it was something else, so I had it taken out, but I have considered getting another one .

    Oh, and the day I had mine put in I had minor cramps, but nothing unbearable .

  • I have had mine for just over two years. I gained about 30lbs D:, but I LOVE mine. I had minor discomfort the day it was inserted, but nothing even worth taking tylenol for. I also had spotting for the first four months, which sucked, but now I don't have a period at all, so that is great!
    Over all I love it. There is no worry about where the condom is, or if I took the pill. We are having more sex than ever because we can be spontaneous and not have to worry about pregnancy.

  • I had it for 18 months. It was fine to start with (though my husband could feel the strings furing sex. I started having severe pain in my lower stomach and went to the dr. asap. Its turns out the mirena was causing ovarian cyst and they began to rupture. I had it removed right away and my cyst began to clear up and were gone in a few weeks.

  • Mine was a total nightmare with infection after infection and non stop bleeding from March to July! I would never recomend one to a friend.
