I am 21 years old, without any children and my GYN suggested to me to try Mirena because I've been having abnormal bleeding for awhile now. I've been on Seasonale for almost a year now and prior to changing to this pill I had lost almost 18lbs and since then I have gained it back. I am afraid this Mirena will be extremely painful for me as I have not had children, and as I am sexually active in a steady relationship I am afraid that it will change my sex drive. Will my partner feel the strings coming out of my cervix? Will sex be painful at all with Mirena? Please help!!
It is surprising he is suggesting Mirena as it is not recommended by the manufacturer that it be given to women who do not have at least one child. Mirena can increase the incidence of ectopic pregnancy and if this would occur you will lose the function of that fallopian tube which reduces your fertility. It can also cause some scarring in some individiuals. It is really not a good choice for a nulliparous (a woman who has never given birth) woman. I, personally, would ask him what other options are. There is a reason that the manufacturer says not to implant in a nulliparous woman. Read up on Mirena as much as you can. There is info here on DDC and you could probably google Mirena and see if the manufacturer has a site. I would figure they probably do. If you do decide to go with Mirena-your partner may be able to feel the strings. Some men are able to feel them where they exit the cervix. Most women do not complain of pain during sex while using Mirena. It is comparable to the Pill in its ability to supress the sex drive.
