    Anybody have positive experiences with Mirena IUD?

    My dr. is recommending the Mirena IUD to control break through bleeding, not for birth control purposes, does anyone have any positive experiences you can share with me. I'm tired of bleeding 3 weeks out of the month and want to try something, but I haven't read alot of positives about this.
    thanks

    i got Mirena for a similar reason. not for birth control, but to control my bleeding. my cycles were way off and my periods were extremely heavy. i've had Mirena for almost four months now and i love it. my cycles are still off, but the bleeding is significantly lighter and i have had almost no cramping. overall, i'm very happy with it.

    My dr. had told me, it could take several months for the bleeding to stop. So, maybe give it a few more months.
    I'm still not real sure I understand how it can have hormones in it, that last for 5 yrs.! And I also wonder about having a piece of plastic in my body too. I guess I'm pretty confused on the whole thing yet.

    I had the Mirena IUD inserted during my period at the end of May. For the first couple of months, I had continuous light bleeding, but now it has totally stopped. I have very light periods with little cramping. So far, I love it and would definatley recommedn it to others. It doesn't have all of the side effects that come with taking the pill.

    Re: Anybody have positive experiences with Mirena IUD?

    Hello to all. I've had my Mirena IUD in place since March 02. I had heavy bleeding during my periods before and after having it in place it tapered off slowly. I too was tired of having my period for 8 weeks straight after having it put in, but just give it time. I now, after 3 years rarely have an episode of bleeding. What a JOY. I've never had any discomfort nor any other problems with it. Perhaps I'm lucky...all I know is that I'm so happy that I head about Mirena and decided to "go for it."
