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.

I have the Mirena right now. I have had it for a little over 3 years. At first it seemed to help with the pain, but now my endo seems to be getting work. No side effects.
I had a Mirena placed in December 2012 to help control the excessive bleeding and it shortened my PMS by a couple days but the symptoms are just as intense maybe worse.

Got Mirena implant in 2010. Stopped bleeding for the most part, but still cramping at least 3 weeks/month.
