I know there are a million posts on here about Mirena but I just need some personal experiences. I am scheduled to get Mirena on Thursday and I'm scared stiff. lol. I used Dr. Google and scared myself by reading about hair loss, weight gain, ruptured uterus, etc. If you have or have had Mirena, what are your experiences?
I chose Mirena because I've never used it and the convenience of it. I've been on the Pill, patch, ring, etc, years ago and the side affects were terrible. I had terrible mood swings and acted like a crazy woman. I was constantly sick as well. I don't want BC at all but I'm not going to make a permanent decision so Mirena it is.
Please give me your experiences and help ease my mind. Also, what affects did you have in terms of bleeding at first, your future period, pain and cramping after insertion and later on down the road.
