Does/Did anyone have the Mirena IUD? I'm really leaning towards getting it but I'm scared of all the horror stories I have heard about it, but I want to be prepared and informed also.
Does it hurt?
Did it cause excessive bleeding or stop cycle altogether?
Did it have any sexual side effects?
The sexual side effects question is the most important to me... pain will eventually subside and my cycle is terrible now. But I have had trouble in the past with BC making me not ever want to be with DH... So I'm really tying to avoid that if I can. But I have to choose some kind of BC because I need somthing to get rid of cysts that have formed while I have not been on BC.
I have one, and love it.
I would recommend it to anyone!
The first 3 months I had irregular bleeding(dr said it was very normal), but since then I have not had a normal period. I have very light spotting a couple days a month, but that's it! I had no pain with it. And it has not negatively affected our sex life at all. If anything it has made it better because it keeps my hormones and mood swings (that come with my cycle) to a bare minimum.
