Anyone have or had the Mirena iud? Thoughts? Maybe TMI
So my OBGYN wants to put in a Mirena iud to help with a medical issue not for birth control(I had a tubal 2,5 years ago) To make a long story short I have many many many uterine polyps and she feels the iud will help reduce blood flow and the hormones down there which in turn should decrease the size and number of polyps. If the polyps were not bothering me I would just let it go but I am in a lot of pain. My periouds are AWFUL! I now have to deal with sciatica pain and MAJOR cramping throught out the month not just during my periods, Sorry for TMI.
So my questions are : Have you ever had Mirena? Did it hurt going in or hurt at anytime while it was in? Side effects??? Anything else you feel I should know about it. Thanks in advance!
The info on line is so confusing and I really just want a real person from cm's opinion,
