IzzyBear:  Thank you so much for sharing your experience with this.  I’m planning on getting Mirena after I deliver and was wondering what the actual procedure was like, so this helps a ton.

IzzyBear:  Glad it worked for you. I have had mine since September and love love love it. My period got way lighter as soon as they put it in, and then I had one more really light one the following month, and then it stopped forever. I still get some of the symptoms–food cravings, breast tenderness, kinda cranky–but pretty mild and no actual bleeding. Hoping you’re as happy as I am.

I am on my 4th Mirena. #1 & #2 were awesome. #2 was removed to TTC and I got pregnant without even having a period! Super easy! ( way easier than I ever imagined!)

 

#3 was put in this feb and I had weird pains and bleeding and than it expelled about a month after insertion! #4 was put in this May. Everything’s good so far but lots of spotting. I read to expect to spot more than 50% of the days for the first 3 months and that’s been true for me. with my first it was the same and eventually my periods stopped, which I personally love!

My doctor ordered the mirena for me but my insurance wouldn’t cover it because they said it could be birth control ( thats not why my dr ordered it). Now that they have to because of obamacare, I’m going to try again.

ive had mine for almost 2 1/2 years and i love it!! i got it insterted 6weeks after i had my son.. i did not experience any pains when it was insterted or afterwards probably because i was still stretched out in that area. 

 

However i am getting ready to take it out soon. time to plan for baby number two!! 🙂 any one ever have theres taken out how was the experience?

FutureArchidiacono:  I had an iud removed once. It was very similiar to the placement, pinching, eyes closed really tight, hands in a fist, etc. It was over before I knew it.

IzzyBear:  I love my Mirena too. I’ve had it since May of 2010 after I had my daughter. so i’ll have it removed about a month before we get married next year. Good and bad timing lol

I haven’t had any issues with mine, and I get usually about 4, 1-2day “periods” a year.

I am 2 years into my Mirena and I LOVE it!

I did have spotting for like 3 MONTHS – I got so fed up I started researching what I could do. I found  an herbal tincture called Sherpherds Purse at a local organic grocery that has been used to stop uterine bleeding by midwives for centuries. It worked in 2 days! Boom.

1.5years with mine and I NOW love it! Barely have any periods, and it does come (like once every 5-6months) a pantiliner is all I need for about 4 days. I dont have any kids and the insertion was HELL!!!!! Seriously felt like I got hit with a truck, severe cramping and back pain. I to take the rest of the day off work and was on pain meds for 4 days. Was it worth it?…yup!

I love mine as well. Seriously game changing for me not having to deal with periods all the time. Plus the ease of not thinking about birth control. 

My insertion was very similar, but about a week later I started getting sharp cramps that lasted on and off for two weeks. After that just mild spotting for about three months.

Completely worth it.
