Mirena

So I got the Mirena a couple days ago and am still spotting some from it, but so far so good! I was pretty crampy the first night but I think its because I over did it at work, but since then I cant even tell that I have it! YAY! i just cant wait till Sat when I can finally DTD again!! anyone else have it?? What has your experience been like with it?

I never went on it but was going to. My doc had said to try a regular bcp for a few months and then go in to reduce breakthrough but then I never tried it.I am glad you like it Smile

No, I thought about it but I've decided to make DH get snipped. Either that or we can have another baby Wink

I think you will love it once everything settles in. I had the norplant back in the day, which was the first of the semi-permanent bc methods. I loved it, best thing I ever did.

I had it for about 9 months and liked it pretty well. Only thing was DH could feel the string in some positions. (sorry, tmi!)
When I got it taken out though they almost wouldn't take it out b/c they said I should have left it in for at least a year (for insurance costs I guess). But I was planning on TTC and was advised to get off bc 3 months before we wanted to TTC to get my cycles back on track. It was a little weird that they were almost refusing to take it out, but I think it had to do w/ me being on Medicaid at first but then I got on regular insurance and had to pay to get it taken out.
Anyways... after a couple months my periods totally went away so that was a plus!
