Hi I'm looking into going on the mirena iud and I was wondering if any mods here have personal experience with it that they'd be willing to share.

I don’t have any personal experience with it myself, but if any of the other mods or even our followers would like to share their experience, feel free o reblog/add on to this. - Paige

I tried Mirena, and sadly, it did not work for me. I had a rare but severe reaction to it and my body basically tried rejecting it. I was in so much pain and felt so nauseous that I had to have it removed after 20 minutes. Don’t let that discourage you, though! The nurse had only seen that reaction once before in her 30 years of doing her job. Despite my experience with it, I highly recommend it. I wish it would have worked for me. Good luck!
