Experience

I love my Mirena which I know isn’t the case for everyone but it was just such a blessing after having a shit time on the pill and I feel like there aren’t enough women talking about their positive hormonal IUD experiences. I haven’t had a period in five years There’s also a lot of misinfo and ppl attributing stuff that can’t possibly be caused by their IUD to their IUD so definitely read up on this, avoid the Facebook groups and talk to your gyno.
