I have it but I am getting it taken out soon. I have never had any of those problems. But if you google mirena side effects there are plenty of websites that will provide that information.

I havent had the Mirena but I have the other one (the Paraguard) & I've had no problems with it. If you smoke I highly suggest you give the Paraguard a try. There is no hormones so it cuts out the risk of blood clots (I got them from my BC & almost died), heart attack, and stroke.

i didn't have the bleeding but i had: migraines, hairloss, EXTREME moodiness (to where my husband had no idea who i was), i didn't gain weight but i couldn't LOOSE it, NO energy, and all of the pregnancy symptoms there are. i had mine taken out after 9 or so months of having it in and the day after i felt amazing. i was rearranging my whole house, i didn't snap once, and it was like my eyes opened up. i will never go back onto it again. and my husband and i are now doing natural family planning until we both get fixed. lol.

 My experience has been MUCH better than those above! I had it put it after my daughter which was 2 years ago. It was uncomfortable when they put it in, but not painful. The first 3-4 weeks I had spotting and a little crampy. After that though, no cramping, RARELY ANY BLEEDING, maybe spot once every 4 months, no period, no headaches, no moodiness at all, no bloating or weight gain! So, I LOVE it and will keep it in until we wanna try for baby number two but I will definitely be getting another one in after that baby as well!! I would recommend this to anyone, I forget that it's even there!! The string is soft now so my hubby can't feel it and he loves not having to worry if I took the pill or have to go to the doc's every 3 months for a shot!

Hope I helped!

 I'm on my second Mirena. I have had it a total of 7yrs and have not had ANY problems at all. For me it has been the greatest form of BC I have ever tried.
