I am 21 and in a committed relationship and we like to have sex, well a lot. I have been on birth control pills for 2 or so years now and I seem to have lost my sex drive, I am dry, and moody. I also have a problem with remembering to take my pill everyday. We like to go out and I don't always remember to bring it with me. I am thinking about getting Mirena to maybe cure these problems I have but I have not been able to find reviews of how sex was after the insertion. Me and my boyfriend do get quite 'into it' if you know what I mean and I don't want to have sex be uncomfortable if I do decide to get it. I have also been wondering if having very passionate sex can cause Mirena to be knocked out of place or cause more of a risk of it puncturing though? Any advice is welcome!
Sex after Mirena?

Hi! So I’ve had my Mirena for about 8 months and I absolutely love it. I’ve never had children and I’m only 18, so don’t worry about that being a factor. The insertion (for me) wasn’t that painful, but the cramps afterwards definitely were. Rough sex is not uncomfortable in the slightest, nor is there a risk for it to get bumped out of place (if the doctor placed it correctly in the first place, which they most likely will) :)
The only downside I’ve had so far is that my first month of having it, I bled pretty much the whole time. After that though, my periods got lighter and lighter and less painful and now they are non existent :) really worth it to me since I had very heavy periods before and would get moody on the pill.
Best of luck!!!
this is just from my experience. i recently gave birth to my 4th child after getting pregnant while on the pill... ive had implanon which worked for 3 years but caused weight gain and cystic acne(painful) so this time around i decided on mirena. did my research and decided its something i wanted to try. like i said "my experience" the insertion was the worst pain of my life. yes even after giving birth. immediate contractions. they say cramps but when they insert it theyre actually opening your cervix and that causes contraction like pain. i recognized them right away. after insertion i bled. not just a little bit. but they had to clean up the floor bled. she packed my vagina w medicine to stop and clot the blood. so for about a week after i had black gunk coming out which was the meds. the pain after. i had to rest and take it easy for 2 days. i was scared id bleed out.
im 2 wks on mirena and had sex w my husband for 1st time after insertion. im in pain. probably way too soon concidering the horror i went through. i wld say wait at least 4 wks. better safe than sorry.
I got Kyleena which is an iud similar to mirena just smaller. I haven't had kids so it was better cause it's tiny. I have always had a really high libido and that never changed after getting the iud inserted, and my boyfriend cannot feel it at all! So far we have been together many times and everything is still good. I got it in a couple weeks ago, only complaint is cramping and some spotting and brown discharge but nothing that some ibuprofen can't fix!
I've had the Mirena for 7 weeks now. My only problem has been spotting ever since I had it put in. Mainly through the day. To answer your question about the sex, I think it has been better, mainly because we aren't worried about a pregnancy now. My partner hasn't been able to feel the strings during sex at all, my doctor told me that the threads are very fine and when there is good lubrication you just can't feel them.
I got mirena about 2-3 years ago and have no complaints. I've never had sex prior to the iud so I'm not sure if it's relevant or not, but when I got mirena it felt like I was having a really bad cramp during the process of inserting the iud. It probably didn't help that I forgot to take some Advil but overall it wasn't too bad. I notice that my period gradually got less heavy and only last 5 days or so. I've had sex, in multiple positions, and didn't notice any discomfort down there during or after sex. I do make sure to check if I could feel the strings once in a while especially if I had painful cramps or soreness around the pelvis and abdominal area.
Ok a few things I'm 27 and have had mirena in since I had my daughter in 2011 they inserted it a couple weeks after giving birth there was no discomfort after I had my child that is why they would like you to have at least one child however right after giving birth everything is dilated for 6 weeks so you will not feel it inserted and there will be no pain. I just had to get mine changed cause it was up to my 5 years when it was removed there was a slight pinch however after the new one was inserted there was blood and there was massive cramping that hurt for a couple hours after the insertion but I continued to bleed for about a day. I have never had an issue with it moving necessarily but I also didn't really check my strings I figured if you don't feel it come out when you go to the bathroom or are having dicomfort no issues. Im on year 5 and have had no possible pregnancies. Good luck.
My partner has Merina after our second kid. It is being more than 5 years now. I lost the sex interest on her, since it cut (string) the male part, and it is very painful during the first few months. Psychologically, I feel if I have sex, I will get hurt. Initially I had some cuts in my male part. She always like have sex, but I don't like. I also started having other medical problems because of that. I would not recommend to anybody. I have lot of sex interest, but I don't like to have with her.
I have mirena, I'm 18 and have never carried a child. My boyfriend and i also "get really into it" and he has personally never even noticed my strings being there and i honestly forget it's there too. If you do decide to go with Mirena it won't slow you down in any way or make anything uncomfortable.
To schooleannd, in my experience w mirena no amount of 'passionate' sex has moved it. My fiancée has not ever felt it, although I've heard of other situations where lovers may feel the threads, but not many. It has definitely made life easier for me but my reason for using it was not birth control. It was to stop long periods of bleeding and it has. Its nice to have lighter monthly bleeding without surgery. Good luck!
I've had the Mirena for 1 1/2 years now. My partner has a very long penis and sex can get very painful. Usually when he goes very deep by placing my legs on his shoulders and folding me up like the shape of a shrimp or the number 6. I do not have daily pain. I have also read that the Mirena can shift and become lodged into other organs. When I go to the GYN I always have my strings checked since my partner and I can't feel them anymore. They were a lot shorter at the last visit. So yes, the Mirena has moved. I have noticed my vision has changed tremendously. It's very blurry and I can't see at night while driving when it's dark. I have also noticed I see black floaters (spots moving around) now too. On most days I have this "I don't feel well" feeling. I still have a period it's ultimately very light where I only have to use pantiliners but it's an even more nuisance because it lasts for so long.
My cycles usually lasts about 7-14 days whereas they used to only last 3-4 days. They are not painful anymore, thank goodness! I used to have horrible cramps, nausea, vomiting, and very heavy bleeding. I don't have any of that anymore but I do have other side effects as mentioned above. I am now wearing glasses whereas I didn't need them before. I like the fact I don't have to worry about having any more children since I do have 4 and I'm almost 40 with my youngest being two. I have recently heard there is a pending lawsuit that includes Mirena, so I would definitely recommend doing further research or trying a different method. It's crazy because I thought with all my symptoms I may have had cancer because I noticed some new lumps in my breast (keep in mind I just recently stopped breastfeeding also). But I thought maybe these were my approaching death symptoms, then I heard the lawsuit on a commercial just yesterday and I began doing research to see if anyone else has noticed some or any of my same symptoms or side effects. Hopefully this post can answer some questions of another inquisitive woman. Take care
Hello well I am the best person to answer this I've had the Morena for 5 years and 7 months I kept getting so busy but I finally got a new one in yesterday. From my experience I never had any issues during sex sometimes my bf at the time would tell me sometimes they can feel something but it didn't bother them and sex was never painful. I honestly feel the mirena is the best thing I did for myself because I didn't want any more kids since I'm young. From what I know you can have the mirena even though u haven't had any kids.
I had the mirena i got it when i was 18 and now im 21. Me and my boyfriend had sex all the time also! But after having the mirena it made my sex life horrible. It hurt so bad i was in tears. I told my doctors and they all gave me different answers refusing to remove my mirena.
You nor your partner won't even notice it's there. I highly recommended it.
Hi I'm 24 n I just got mieran put in about four days ago and everything is lovely so far so good I didn't even feel it go in. It feels like a hard cramp that's all. A little pitnch.that's how you know it's installed correctly U won't feel a thing. I hope it continues to work.. sex after it. I tried it was okay but my doc told me wait at least five days so I'm waiting.
I am a petite mother of 6 children. I have had trouble with my periods and thinking of trying the Mirena. My husband and I enjoy very vigorous and rough sex including role plays most nights of the week. I have read horror stories about large men pushing the strings up and then me not being able to find them. My husbands penis is about 8 inches long, sometimes larger if I get him really excited. The main question is, am I going to be one of these horror stories? I don't want anything to change in our sex life and I'm sure he doesn't either.
