  • I had Merina removed because of the cramping and the fact that my husbnand and I want to have a child. If it is giving you such a hassle than you should probably do some more research and if you continue to have the issues take it out.

  • I've only had my Mirena for three days now, but my period has already stopped, and my belly was distended until this morning (hopefully that doesn't happen again)

  • Oh and I forgot to mention the worse of it all, I have NEVER gotten pimples NEVER and I am 31 after my year was up with this thing I began to break out and have other friends tell me the same thing. So a note to all!! I use Epsom salt to keep my face clean, if youd like send me a message and I will explain. This is the best stuff ever and all natural!!
