I am deciding between Mirena and nexplanon for long term birth control. My concern with mirena is that my current partner is, ahem, on the larger side, and I'm worried that the strings will hurt him. Previously, I was using nuvaring, and it was extremely painful to him if I left it in during intercourse. My concerns with nexplanon are that in many of the reviews I read women experienced a lot of bleeding and oily skin. Has anyone had experience with both? Or, in particular, what have been the experiences of women with well endowed partners and the Mirena strings?
I just recieved mirena yesterday and was told it was effective immeadiately. I stopped hurting last night so my husband and i went for it. I was nervous at first but it was great. He is very well endowed and didnt feel my strings at all and if your partner does feel them your ob can trim them. The sex was great. Thus far, i love my mirena
