I had the Mirena put in April of 2008... it's been 5 years and i need to make an appt to have in removed. I loved the mirena... no cramps, headaches, or any other complications for the entire duration. Last night i had some bleeding.. nothing heavy.. today it was even lighter. No cramps, backaches, headaches... nothing. I'm in the process of finding a new OBGYN but i want to go prepared. I've heard good things about Nuva ring and of course Mirena is still an option. My cousin had some kind of tubal surgery done (can't remember the exact procedure) and she is really pleased. I'm not 100% sure united healthcare covers the removal and insertion of mirena or any other kind of IUD.. i will have to double check all of that.
What are your opinions or recommendations of IUD's! Thanks!!
