Do you dislike Mirena as much as I do?!

I chose it because I was told that the period would cease after a period of time (about 7 mnths or so), and unlike the Depo shot, would not have any unwelcomed side affects like hair loss, weight gain, etc. However, here I am 10 months later, still getting a period every month AND the INCREDIBLY annoying spotting. I said I would give it until my daughter is 1 year old. If it's the same, I might as well take it out, it's almost like getting EXTRA periods (w/the spotting), instead of none!

wow your really having that many problems. I got mine placed when my son was about 8 weeks old and I absolutely love it - minimal spotting, occasion cramping maybe 1 day or so, no period now for the last 22 or 3 mos - I had the depo for about 8 years and although I loved the idea of no period hated the weight gain - so far with the Mirena no weight gain -

It doesn't stop every women period. I have it and love it because the pill and others have always effected my mood and i would receive every other side effect that you could get. Sorry you don't like it but i thought i would share my success with it. It isn't as bad as others and every woman is different.
