Mirena Reviews

Working / Worked
pains went a bit when i first got it in.

Agony for first three months and constant bleeding. Then, brilliant when it settled down. No periods for a while and no endo symptoms. However, terrible monthly mood swings and a gradual return of endo symptoms after 2 yrs. Would still recommend Mirena though.

Once you get past the first week, the cramping is sparse/non-existant. There was a little dizziness and nausea after insertion, but nothing major. For me it was like labor pains all over again. Despite that I'd do it again in a heartbeat! My sex drive is back, no more injections, and best of all, I'm pain-free. After years of suffering with this, Mirena is like mana to me!

Bleed for 8 months was reduced to spotting by the BCP. Currently on this form of treatment.

Although it did work, it caused continuous BV and then continuous UTI's. I had it removed and I went right into polycystic overies...which is a side effect of this IUD.
