Re: Mirena IUD for cysts/heavy periods
I had the Mirena put in about a month and a half ago. I am very sexually active but have never had children and they say that the pain is worse if you have never had children. The pain putting it it was horrible for me and I didn't feel great for the rest of the day. When I got home and read their pamplet, it actually said that some people get a local anesthisia but I think if you take a couple of advil before you go in, you should be fine. I didn't take anything because I was just expecting a couple of PMS type cramps. It hurt bad but he had the pap and everything done in less than 5 minutes so it's bearable. Other than the insertion pain and not feeling well the rest of that day--I have had no problems except for the fact that I am breaking out a lot more than usual. I think that was from a new makeup that I tried though but I'm not real sure. I LOVE it, but I have heard that some women have some serious problems with it. Every person is going to react a little different to it though.
