For the next 5 years at least. Had my mirena put in this week and it was surprisingly painless. Pretty sure we are done at 2 kids but you never know, I didn't want to do anything permanent just yet.
Anyway, highly recommend it!
Tricia879:I went on the BC pill this time around, I had the mirena after my first and I had issues with it otherwise I would have done it again. Although we are still on the fence of when or if to have another one.
Oh no, what issues did you have?
I literally researched every possible BC and mirena came out the winner. I'd be cool with not having a period too which is possible with it.
I like mine now, but mine was NOT painless. The first one didn't get set correctly so I had to have that one taken out and a second put in...all in the same visit. I didn't cramp for long, so I was thankful for that after being violated 4 times in a period of an hour (had two transvaginal u/s to check placment). I like not having to worry about it.
Are you spotting? I have been and think AF has finally hit!
