Has anyone tried the Mirena IUD and would you recommend it?

I am considering getting the Mirena IUD, but I want to know how others feel about it. If you have had one would you recommend it? Any problems?

  • I had it for 7 years and LOVED LOVED LOVED it. It was supposed to last 10 years, but after 6 it started to malfunction and I would bleed for about a day everytime hubby even looked at me so I had to have it taken out. I say go for it. You can get ones with hormones and ones without so I do not understand why more women dont get them. I loved not having to worry about it at all.

  • I have my second one in now and I love it. I did have some spotting after it was first put in- but that is pretty normal. With my first one- my periods almost disappeared they were so light. They're still really light with this one. I love it and I would recommend it to anyone!
