  • I wasn't afraid to have sex after I had mine inserted. My husband was. It was fine, well, better than fine. It is great because you don't have to use condoms. My husband was worried that he might feel the strings or get poked or hurt me. None of that happened. I had asked my midwife to cut my strings short. Overall sex is wonderful with it and I even got my sex drive back, I thank the Mirena for this.

  • I didn't wait after mine was put in. It didn't hurt at all, and felt like normal sex. Just be gentle and take it slow in case you're still tender.

  • I was nervous after I had it put in, and at the 6 week mark after having my baby sex was nearly impossible because of pain, but I had the mirena put in around 10 weeks, and could have pleasurable sex around 12 weeks
