I have heard good and bad things about the Mirena, I'm on the Depo and love it, so I'm no help. Good luck!

I've only had depo and I agree, it's not good... good luck with the mirena.

Love it. I have no negative side effects. My OB said only 20% of women on the Depo have no side effects, I just got lucky. I actually got pregnant switching from the Depo to the pill with my oldest DD (not planned),with my youngest I was off it for 1 month and conceived (planned). My sister had awful side effects on the Depo, gained 50 lbs, bled heavily for the three months and had awful mood swings. One of my friends has the para guard IUD and loves it. No hormones and it's good for 10 years.

My sister had the depo, she hated it. I had mirena for about a month. The whole time I had heavy bleeding and massive cramps.
