redroses76:  thanks for sharing your experience! I’m considering switching from the pill to either skyla or mirena. My friends and sister all have mirena and love it.

redroses76:  Great post. I was considering making one myself after I’ve had Mirena a while. I just got mine put in a week ago today. I will say that it hurt more more me than you described, but I didn’t have a cervical block and I was not on my period (as many people are for insertion). I think I have a pretty high pain tolerance and I didn’t pass out or anything, but it was pretty bad (much more than a really bad cramp), but over very fast. So far, I’ve had a similar experience to you though. I had solid cramps the day of and spotting for a few days after, cramps a couple days more than that. The past two days, no cramps and no spotting. We’ll see what happens when it comes time for my period. I’d heard so many horror stories about bleeding for months and such, but so far, this has been great. 

I will say that I had the hardest time feeling the strings. I finally felt them tonight and I literally jumped up and cheered, haha.

Great post! I have a Skyla too – insertion was THE WORST (I could’t take ibuprofen since I was on Coumadin for a blood clot at the time). TOTALLY AGREE THOUGH. Its so great not to have to remember to do anything for 3 years, basically.
