    @nineteen87: I picked two for my period. I got my Mirena in April 2011 and I had a period in May and then no period at all until November 2011. And now my periods are much lighter than they used to be. I still get cramps, and, for some reason, even though my period is lighter, it lasts longer than it did before Mirena. It used to be 5 days, now it is 7-8 days. So I chose “no period” and “lighter than before” because both were true in my case.

    Also, I had already had a child before I got Mirena put in. So there’s that, FWIW.

    @nineteen87: I know when I talked to my doc about it she said that some women do pretty much stop having periods while on Mirena, and while it doesn’t happen to the majority of women, it was a normal potential side effect. So I didn’t worry too much about it. And you’re right, it is kind of nice not to have to deal with that 🙂

    I still get the cramps, cravings, and mood swings, but no period other than that.

    I had a baby like, 6 years ago, but I’ve heard it still works well if you’ve never had kids.  Go to Planned Parenthood – as long as you are in a serious monogamous relationship, they’ll give it out like candy.
