I've had the Mirena for about
2 1/2 years now and I would definitely recommend it. The only negative thing I have to say about
it is that I spotted for quite a while after it was inserted. Maybe 2 or 3 months - off and on and very light. I know some women stop having a period but of course I'm not one of the lucky ones. However, it is much lighter. I still feel like my UC gets a little wonky around that time of month. It's so nice not having to take the pill though - it's not like we don't have enough to take already. Have you heard of that ablation procedure? Could be another option and then your body wouldn't have to deal with the hormones from birth control.
