Started using it in 2007 took it out in 2011 because I thought it was the IUD causing all my pain. (not knowing I had endo.)

Got this in August 2012, had spotting for 3 months, but each month less and cycle more regular. It reduced bleeding to barely anything, which I consider a miracle! But I had an endometrioma cyst that needed to be removed and that hurt more with each cycle. Had to add back combo pill with estrogen to help that pain until cystectomy. Hope to just have Mirena only eventually and see if that enough.

This is helping, after 10 months I have almost completely ceased my menstrual cycle. Still have it sometimes and I so ovulate still which is incredibly painful.

Was on after my daughter was born, didn't know I had endo but took out after a year to rule out hormonal imbalance as to why I was so ill.

I don't use the Mirena IUD but I have the implant in my arm that has the same hormones. I am lucky and am part of only 10% of women that do not have periods on the implant or any harsh side effects.
