im in a comminted relationship with my boyfriend and i have two kids which are 2 and 5 ive tired the pills and shot but got depression from them ive been told the mirena is good and effected anyone else have any advice that would help with my nervous or anything thank you
I dont know if this will help, but im going on my second week on the Mirena and besides mild cramps (very mild) and headaches within a couple of days, that could be related to other things, I have no complaints. There are alot of review some good and some bad, but my main concern was the depression as you, i got from the pills. I spoke with my OBGYN and he said that the mirena has a low does off hormones that do not interfere with your mood as the estrogen in BCP do, he also said that since its place in your cervix the hormones are more centralized to that area versus them being taking by mouth and have to actually go through your system. Anyway, something to think abou. :)
Hi Jazzie101 I had the Mirena in for 5 years and it was the best thing I had ever done at that time. I had been on the normal pill for several years and my periods were really heavy and I have to say the Mirena made them less heavy in fact they became really light and were much better. So the reason why it had to be taken out is because it has to be taken out at 5 years and at that time the specialist said it was time for me to have a Hysterectomy because of Endometreosis that I have had since my early 20's and I was in my 30's when I had the Hysterectomy. Placing the Mirena is no worse then having a smear done, so it really isn't to much of a problem having it fitted. Hope this helps, Liz.
