I get them confused even though I have one I have the copper non hormone which ever that is. I have two friends who have gotten pregnant on it so for us it's just a back up we use in conjunction with other methods.

I have it  and have had no problems.... heavy flow in the beginning but tapered off to normal after a month or so

I've had a mirena in for a few years bow and have started having some GNARLY cramps and ovarian cysts. I didn't get either before. I haven't had a real period in about 2 years now and when I have one at all its just spotting for a day. I dig that part but could do without the rest. :) it also took a few months to get my period back, then it was like clockwork for about 9 months and eventually disappeared altogether.

I had the paraguard and it was pretty awful, but my doctor told me that my experience was unusual. He also told me that the IUD had migrated to a different area from where he'd placed it, so that may have been the reason. Regardless, I hated it for the 14 months that I had it. I menstruated at least 2 weeks out of every month and had cramps for at least 3/4 of the month. When I was actually menstruating the cramps could get debilitating. I was so relieved to have the darn thing removed.

mirana is different. Paragaurd is copper and no hormones.
