  • ..i was 31 when i had my daughter, so i was given the mirena at my follow-up appointment. the only side effect i experienced was bleeding for 14 weeks straight.. granted, i was still bleeding from giving birth.. and im not sure how long mamas DO bleed after having our babies.. so it may not be a side effect at all.. oh, and also.. and this is likely tmi but you asked.. ;-) um.. after orgasm.. it sort of "pops" for a minute or two.. its barely noticeable.. and neither pleasant or unpleasant.. just a faint little sensation.
