I had the Mirena inserted in August. STILL bleeding....... I have an appt. Friday and I am highly considering having it removed at that time. Everything else has been ok but I can't take the constant bleeding. You are supposed to check it every month by feeling for the strings to make sure they haven't moved. I, personally don't check. A coworker of mine lost about ten pounds and hers fell out, so I dunno..... I recommend checking out the Mirena group and getting other opinions.

Do a forum search there are alot of negative side effects that the Dr will not tell you about.

I absolutely love everything about mine. I think it was one of the best decisions i ever made. I have no side effects and no pain. I love not having anything to worry about and no pills to remember to take! My husband loves it too!

Lots of people hate it and lots of people love it.

I have the Paraguard, its an IUD and it has no hormones so there's no risk of blood clots, heart attack, or stroke.

 I have it, I dnt even know it's there.  After my period each mth I check to make sure it's still there, I wouldn't consider that "all the time".  I had some spotting for the 1st mth, but after that everything is fine.  I have no complaints with it at all.

Me my sister and my bestfriend have one. None of us have had any problems with them and love it. But i would request it be inserted during your period so its less cramping.
