Does anyone here have the Mirena IUD or had it in the past? I'm getting one placed tomorrow and wanted to know thoughts and opinions. In my research the reviews seem mixed but a lot more good then bad.

Thanks in advance!

I had one in 2008 for 3 years. I never had any bad side effects. I have another one placed last August after I had our second. Still love it :)

 I currently take pills too. Just too much due to forgetting etc.

 That's good to know thank you. I don't know why I'm nervous about the pain with the insert when I've had 2 natural unmedicated births lmbo. Mixed reviews on that too online.

As far as the pain...if rate it more as uncomfortable than painful and it's a very quick process. I was nervous to the point of tears on getting my first one out lol! My OB was dying laughing because I didn't even realize he had pulled it out. So, to me, it's not a painful.

My sister and I both had one. My advice DON'T DO IT! It screwed me yo for years even after I got it removed. My sister has 3 miscarriages lost in increasingly heart breaking and painful ways. DON'T DO IT, STAY FAR AWAY!
