All you ladies who stopped getting their periods with the IUD are SOOOOO lucky!!!
I had the Mirena after Jonas (#3) and I STILL got my periods every month just like normal. Ugh. They didn't even get a tad bit lighter or anything.
It did hurt just a little going in. I was 8 weeks PP and maybe it hurt a little because my cervix was closing up already. No big deal though.
Honestly, I didn't like having the Mirena and wish I hadn't gotten it. But my midwife (and everyone else for that matter) was really pushing for me to get it. I had my first three kids in LESS than 3 years. She offered it to me for free so I felt like I couldn't resist. I had it for 18 months and when I had it removed, it took FOREVER to conceive again.
I don't really like how you can actually conceive a baby, but it will be prevented from implanting because of the IUD. Just my .
