mirroredimage:My OB has discussed Mirena with me. I'm up for it. We don't need 3u3. A third and fourth baby would be wonderful, just not anytime soon. :)
agreed lol I don't need 3u2 :) I just don't know if we want another or not... Not ready to make that final yet. I think I would do the copper one with no hormones.... I don't want anymore hormones lol
randomosity:I had Mirena right before getting pregnant with my daughter and I hated it. I think we're going to go with a more permanent option should we decide we're done!
do you mind telling me why you hated it? Like was it uncomfortable, or worrying about it?
This is the route I would go if we weren't planning to try to have a second kid as quickly as is possible (emotionally, biologically, financially). I've heard nothing but good things.
But after #2, DH is getting the big V, so no more BC for me!

I bled for the first four or so months when I had it until my OB put me on Estradiol and that finally stopped it. Then, I began breaking out a bunch and had very severe mood swings...turns out, I guess I'm very sensitive to even low doses of hormonal birth control.
However, I do know lots of women that have had great experiences with it, as well!
