It's been 5 years now since I've had the Mirena. For the most part I really like it, never had any major issues. Over the past 6 months or so I've began to have a normal period again (after not having one at all) but I figured it's just because the hormones are running out. Anyhow, I'm debating on what type of birth control I want to try next. Before the Mirena I was never on anything... which is how I ended up with my amazing little girl! :) But, I'm planning on trying to conceive in about 3 years. So I'm debating between the implanon, or the patch? I've read fertility may take a while when you are on the shot, so I don't think I want that. I'm not very good at remembering to take pills everyday, so I'm scared to be on any kind of pills. Any suggestions, thoughts, personal opinions would be greatly appreciated. I've only got a couple more weeks to make this decision. Thanks yall!

I have my second Mirena right now.  I had my first one for the full 5 years.  The day I got it removed, I had a new one inserted.  We are done having babies...so this is our final birth control - I plan to stay on Mrena until menopause.

I used Nuva Ring prior to having my son and conceived the first month after stopping. Not so lucky this time around but it may be due to my excessive running and wishy washy husband. After #2, I may go on something long term like mirena
