  • i LOVED my mirena. i had it for 14 months and didn't have a period for the last 12 months. i will say that i thought i was pregnant a few times becuase my periods stopped coming. i also developed two cysts on my left ovary that eventually went away. i got my mirena removed on Dec. 1st to try for another baby. i had my period two days later, ovulated to weeks later and i am currently waiting to see if i am pregnant.

    there are a lot of people out there who hated theirs. i would make sure you do your research first. good luck! xoxo

  • I have had mine in since 2/07 and I love mine. I have no period just once in a while I have some really light spotting. No cramps or pms either. I'm happy with it.
