Experience

I’m on my third Mirena (12.5 years after my last baby). Insertion is never fun, but by the next day I’m back to normal. I do have a regular “period” but it’s more like a couple days of spotting with some tender breasts about a week before. Gone are the days of going through several super tampons and horrible cramps. I love that I don’t have to take a pill every day and I love that it doesn’t affect my mood or sex drive. Highly recommend. 5 stars!
