Long story short, I might be pregnant. If I'm not, I have an appointment to get Mirena, because, really, a pregnancy right now would suck lol. Not a baby, a baby would be great, a PREGNANCY would suck. It's expensive, I would have to suffer through three months of agonizing morning sickness and fatigue, then 3 months of backaches later on, and giving birth doesn't exactly appeal to me right now lol.
Anyway, I don't think I'm pregnant because I usually have symptoms really early on. I'll be taking a test Monday, but until then, I'm trying to get some feedback on Mirena.
Things I like about it:
- Could help with my terrible cramping
- Could reduce or eliminate my period
- Excellent birth control
- Allows for spontineity
- Doesn't have as large a concentration of hormones as the pill
- Lasts for 5 years
- Can be used by overweight women without a drop in efficacy.
I worry about how much it will hurt to get it placed, and I worry about side effects.
What do you guys have to share with me about this?
