Brittaney’s Mirena Experience – Good

I had my Mirena put in back in February 2010, so I haven’t had it very long, but so far I cannot complain.  Since the placement of Mirena, I have had only 1 period though, which at first freaked me out, but I took a pregnancy test and “negative” was the result, so that was very relieving.  I have had no problems with it, and I believe it’s one of the best IUDs you can have.  I did a ton of research on Mirena side effects before I decided to use it, and I am thankful I went with it.  Although one thing that was very different was my first period I had while being on Mirena.  My periods are normally 5 days long and with Mirena it was 17 days long…..but I still haven’t had another period yet.

I would recommend Mirena to anyone who doesn’t want another baby anytime within the next 5 years or someone who cannot remember to take their birth control pills everyday.  You may also want to use it if your preiods are heavy or cause you a lot of pain.  Maybe you’ll end up like me and not have a period after the first month of having Mirena put in ?
