Did not work for me, I had it in for 8 moths and it had to be removed as I was in alot of pain. Docs thought my pain was down to the mirena but in fact it was the endometriosis.

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!

it worked good

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