  • The only side effect I've had is that I go through periods where I tend to bleed after sex pretty consistently. Also, I have super irregular periods, but then, I have those on my own anyway. Otherwise, I'm very happy with it, and I would recommend it to anyone who asked!

  • I hated mine. I had it taken out after 4 months. During the entire time, I felt like I was pregnant, and the worst part of pregnancy, too, where I felt nauseous all the time. I didn't stop bleeing durint the entire 4 months, either, and it wasn't just spotting. It was a constant light trickle. It was terrible.

    I finally had it taken out and felt better about 1 week after. it did not affect my fertility, as hubby and I got pregnant again 3 months after we started trying for #2.

  • I have health issues not related to the Mirena. I have had mine for years and I love it. I have a period once every 4-5 months and it is pretty much one day of spotting.
