Can anyone give me some personal reviews and facts on mirena and the copper iud's? I've had mittens in the past and I likes it enough but I'm going to be breastfeeding in the next month and a half or so! so I worry about any hormones.

I've had mirena, had it for 5 years (Oct 2005-Dec 2010) and I really enjoyed it. My periods never really STOPPED (at least not till the last 4 months that I had it, lol) but they did get much lighter/shorter.

My periods completely stopped on the Mirena. I didn't mind it...and it's easier than having to remember to take a pill. That being said, the removal of my second Mirena was worse than my first...I ended up with a yeast infection, followed by a uterine infection, and a miscarriage within the 2-3 months post removal. If I do go on b/c again (which, DH and I are debating right now) I'll more than likely get the Mirena iud again. It didn't have any ill effects on my milk supply, and DS successfully b/fed until he was 1.5 years old and we weaned.

Hang on I'll just grab my book and check it. But it is progesterone only bc so it shouldn't affect your supply I just had mine changed on Wednesday
