I have heard and read many things on mirena and how many women are having trouble. getting pregnant, how common is this really? And is it for good?

Well, it all depends upon the individual. If you fear infertility and would like to have children in the future, I'd recommend against any IUD, as they can cause uterine scarring.
Mirena is also only indicated if you've already had one child.
However, my aunt had Mirena implanted, and STILL managed to get pregnant with it still implanted, so nothing is impossible.
