have had mine for a year now.  Love it and totally recommend it!  Just a little spotting about that time of the month

I am on my second Mirena and I love it.  I first got it inserted after my third child was born and I kept it in for the entire 5 years.  Had one period the entire time.  After the birth of my fourth child, I had another one inserted and I have had different results this time.  I did bleed on and off for the first 3 months which it clearly states and once I reached the 3 month mark, I have been period free since.  I am horrible at remembering to take a pill everyday and this was recommended by my midwife.  When my five years is up with this one, I will more than likely have a third one inserted.  I was able to conceive my fourth child with in 3 months of having it removed.

I would say that you should research it. July will make one year that I have had it and I have had some rough times with it. After I had my second I lost all my baby weight and then some, and then I got the Mirena and I blew up like a blimp and I'm heavier than I was while 9 months preg! And I am still on the exact same diet I was on after my 2nd. Also, I have been in the ER 2 times due to horrible cramps. But, there are also the pros. I don't have a period anymore, and if I do it's only a day. Every body is different though so.. you might just want to research a little.
