I failed to mention that besides the daily, continuous bleeding and occasional cramping, I also experienced back pain, extreme irritibility, fatigue and headaches (most likely due from the hormones Mirena was releasing). Fun, fun! Sooo glad that device is out of my body! On a side note, I was on OrthoTriLow for a year many years ago and my body did fine with this (other than more than desirable weight gain), so if you compare what the Mirena IUD does vs the pill, I would take the pill anyday, everyday!!! However, I am opting to stick with good 'ol condoms! I'm done putting my body through hell!!!
