I am thinking about getting the mirena (sp?) IUD. I was just wondering if anyone had one? What is your experience? Do you love it / hate it? I just want some real womens insite on it before I make a decision.

Make sure to do your research. IUD's disrupt the uterine lining so that if by a small chance fertilization does occur, it ends the pregnancy by inhibiting implantation. Many birth controls do this, and I don't think women research them out; and docs don't tell us. Birth control is a personal discion.

I had the 5 year Mirena, it was great for 3 years, low hormones and no periods. But in June of last year I started getting repeated uterine infections and had to have it removed. I have spoken with several women since who have had similar experiences with the IUD. My primary care doctor (not my OB who tried to sell me on the IUD ) said he would not recommend getting one and prompted me to have mine removed even before I got the secong uterine infection..so I don't know if I will be getting another one after this baby. Hope this helps, goodluck deciding.

I had an Mirena IUD put in about a year after I had my 3rd child. I bled for 7 months straight after I got it. I have been advised to have it taken out as soon as possible. I have heard from my doctors office that a lot of women are having problems with these IUDs. I would never get one again.

It costs about 500.00 here in the us.
