I got my Mirena this week and it forking hurt and they had to pull out a back up Mirena because the first one didn't insert all the way. I have had on and off feelings of being poked in the crotch since insertion.

It's been a week since I got the Mirena and I am excessively aware of its presence to the point of being afraid to have sex. Also, I keep spotting.

I spotted for a week after I got the Mirena in, then had my period for five days after the week of spotting.

I was almost exactly the same. The first period was probably the worst I've had in my life, too. But since then it's just been occasional spotting (not even enough to need a pantiliner most of the time) and random cramps (which are worse than the ones I had before, but it's literally just one awful cramp and nothing for a week).

I had my first post-Mirena sex last week (so not quite 2 months after getting it), and the guy didn't mention feeling anything weird. I haven't felt it at all since the week one pains.

I had the Paragard and not the Mirena, so I didn't have the spotting, and was cleared to have sex after the first day, but it was about 2 weeks before I stopped feeling like I could "feel it," if that makes sense.

I remember things being very tender for the week following my Mirena insertion. I think I had sex at day 5, but it was a very cautious operation.

Ha! A cautious operation indeed.

I just had a baby so I will be pissed if I wind up having a period already because of the Mirena. Last time I didn't have a period for at least three months.

I spotted for a while with the mirena then got a period. I was pissed because I wasn't going to get one any time soon because I had just had a baby. Now I never get more than random light spotting for a period. I go back and forth between liking and hating it. I think it could be causing some hormonal issues but on the other had I would have some more serious issues if I had to worry about pregnancy. I can't wait until my partner gets a vasectomy so I can get this thing out of me so I know if it is in fact causing all this.

I feel like I should report back that I have had two lifetimes (5 years) of paraguard (nova-T in Canada) and the cramping is TOTALLY fine now, and has been for the last four years. I love my copper IUD.

I'm giving the copper iud another try! Will have it inserted at the midwives' office when I have my postpartum checkup in two weeks. If it doesn't work out, I'm considering sterilisation.

ugh.

I just had my first period (and PMS) in five freaking years. I got it replaced a little over a month ago (maybe six, seven weeks?), and forking acne! cramps! light spotting! what the shiitake is this?! How do women deal with this crepe every damn month?

I cannot wait for this to be over for another five years.

I have a new iud! Insertion was a breeze this time, probably because it was so soon after giving birth. A little crampy and spotting now.

Just chiming in to say I'm a happy member of the IUD club again. I had a Mirena inserted in August and I love it. I've had IUDs before, and the insertion sucks, but I haven't had any troubles since. My period has disappeared and I love that I don't have to remember to take a pill at the same time every day AND I don't have to worry about pregnancy! Plus, thanks to the Affordable Care Act, it was free :)

Alright, thirteen days of spotting+bleeding+spotting later... I'm remembering why I got rid of my IUD the first time around! Right now it's still better than the alternatives.

Was this at the 6-week mark? My doctor said he prefers to wait until 10 weeks post partum to reduce risk of perforation, which was the first I'd heard of this. (Of waiting, not of perforation.)

Nine weeks (they only do a two-month checkup here).

So, I'm nearly 35 and too fat for Microgynon anymore. It's been ol' faithful since I was about 15 years old so I'm kinda sad :(

I've done lots of research and I'm gonna ask for the Mirena when I see my doc this Friday. I was figuring out what to get between that and the implant, but I love the idea of no periods, so I'll try it out.

I've heard different stories re: insertion (and read a few here), but I once had to have a year of regular colposcopies, and also had a sigmoidoscopy last weekend, so I'm fairly used to being probed! Hoping for a happy 5 years :D

The nurse told me I was too fat for Microgynon too and changed me to a progesterone only pill. But the single hormone does NOT agree with me in pill format or the Mirena, which was the worst thing I ever did!

I discussed it with my doctor and she agreed it would be more of a risk to be pregnant, so she put me back on Microgynon when I had the mirena removed. She will monitor it but has told me to lose weight. Which I'm trying to do anyway.

I was switched to a PO pill too and after a period that lasted 5 weeks solid I just stopped.

I heard the Mirena hormones were 'localised' so hopefully shouldn't have the same effect? (Nnnnng!)

I really hate surrending my body to the mercy of science/others but there isn't too much choice :(

A lot of people do get on with it. But unforatuntely it had the same (actually a worse) effect on me. I bled for 11 weeks (not all day every day, but definitely spotting) and the pain in the end was too much so I asked them to take it out.

Thank god for this thread. I finally have figured out when my current IUD was inserted. Aug. 2012. Time for a new one, I think.

Well, my doc convinced me (or I convinced myself) to go with the implant instead of the Mirena. Fingers crossed my periods don't get too wacky!

Thank you! It's Nexplanon and I'm pretty sure it's P-O. Seems like the only drawback might be wacky periods and/or spotting for a short time but I can handle that. Plus points were better effectiveness and not having to have an anchor shoved up my cervix for less effectiveness than my olde pill......

I got my first Mirena in 2008, had it replaced in 2014, and I don't think I've used a whole box of pantyliners in that time. It was painful cramping at the moment of insertion, but nothing like the cramps I got on my (now non-existant) periods. This last insertion didn't go well, when my gyn went to cut the strings, they snagged on the scissors and pulled it out, so she had to insert a new one.

I'm trying to talk my daughter into getting one, she is afraid of the pain of insertion. But I think the NO PERIODS has her convinced.
