i have it.
7 months now
had spotting each month
2 months period free
hurt a little going in
like a bad period cramp
I have had mine in for about 2 and a half years. I will be getting it removed soon. I have serious weight gain. I tried to lose the weight and will lose about 5lbs then it comes right back even though my eating and drinking do not change. Also I have cramps that are almost debilitating. But the good thing is that I have not had a period in over 2 years
I had one placed after having my daughter who will be 6 in may and it was the most horrible experience ever. That being said the doctor that did it I wasn't familiar with, It punctured my uterus and began to bleed badly. That being said it was at a military hospital and I never saw the doctor again i had it removed. started birth control pills switching from one to the other until I found one that finally worked. I have endometriosis. I began having extremely long periods that lasted 2 1/2 months with maybe a week break between them fed up I found a new doctor that was awesome. She placed my second Mirena last July. It wasn't painless, and caused sever cramps the first day and some bleeding that day and the next. then a mini period. after that my periods were irregular for a bit now are getting further apart and lighter but only lasting 4 days. I had horrible cramping before and now I have none. It has truly been a life saver. My only advice is find a great doctor. that is all the difference.
I got pregnant with twins on it... No lie.
