Happy to have my Mirena

Posted by: Topaz11 on Sun Jan 31, 2010

I'm currently using the Mirena IUD. Here are my pros/cons...

Pros:

-Never have to think about it (except to check strings occassionaly)

-Lasts 5 years and I can take it out when I'm ready to conceive again

-Light periods

Cons:

-Although it this doesn't happen to everyone, I had really painful insertion of the device. Hurt like a son of a gun + cramping after for a day.

-More discharge throughout the month

-My period may be light, but it actually lingers longer for me

This was a good choice for me. I would definitely use it again in the future. Despite the cons, my pros totally outweigh them.
