I have it and I love it! Way better than a pill everyday and accidently forget taking it (that's exactly how I got pregnant before lol but NO REGRETS!) but does anyone else have it? What are your thoughts on it??

  • hated it, loved that I didn't have to take a pill, but it caused me to get ovarian cysts that burst(very painful) and then other unexplainable pain until i made them take it out.

  • I have it too. My only complaint is all the spotting I get (I know everyone is different on this one). I DON'T miss the pill at all! I hated taking a pill every day, and freaking out if I missed one, and I hated Depo even more (I gained 45 lbs in 9 months!). Definitely happiest so far with Mirena.

  • Well, at first i hate a lot of spotting and cramping, as my dr. said would happen so that wasnt cool and also putting it in after having a baby was NOT fun at all! but I guess my body did get used to it bc it's a charm now! Sorry that happened to you tho :(

  • I've had it for 2 weeks and have had a light period/heavy spotting since. Definitely effective if I'm bleeding too much to have sex :) It's my only choice though, I can't remember to take anything else.

  • Had it, loved it, will get it again. No spotting, no bleeding, no cramps, no PMS, no nothing!!!!

  • Had it, hated it and it almost put me in the hospital, so eventually I found someone who would remove it for less than $500. I have journals about the hell I went through with it.

  • what! what happened? if you dont mind me asking...

    Comment by ashleyxo8 (original poster) at 12:52 AM on Dec. 9, 2010

  • I have it. I have cramps all the time with not a single drop of blood. Some days, I think it is puncturing my uterus. The OB says its right in place...............many cramps though. I have never had a period since I had it inserted in Nov. even a tiny bit of spotting. My only concern is the pain. It's not terribly strong, but I feel like with all the pain, there should be something happening. Either way, I'm not ready to be pregnant, so I deal with it. May I add, it's much better than the pill(miss one day and bleed for weeks) and the Nuvaring (where I had migraines constantly). I guess I'm not complaining, but I'm saying that its not perfect.
