Ladies who have or have had Mirena. What can you tell me??
I just got it inserted today and had cramping for about 2 hours after and have had back pain since. I've taken some Tylenol and I was already having my period so the bleeding got worse for about 3 hours and now it's lightening up.
What have your experience been for the first few months?? Also how religious are you about checking the strings?? I was so swollen and bleeding so heavily after that I couldn't find them to check them at my appointment. My OB said once the bleeding stopped to just check then and call if I had any issues.
I bled/spotted for a couple months. I had a weird vaginal odor. I think it caused some hormonal changes, as I was googling for ways to remove it myself. After the OBGYN removed it, the odor was gone and I felt mentally stable.
I bled for several months with the Paragard, then switched to Mirena. So, IUDs just aren't for me. I didn't really check the strings.

I have a paraguard (the IUD with just copper). I had cramping for a couple days and bleeding for a while, maybe a week? I do check for the strings periodically, maybe once a month. This is the second time I've had an IUD and personally love them.
