My friend had an IUD and within three months, have a total uterine prolapse and had a hysterectomy at 26 :( I don't like IUDs anyway because of my religion but I've also heard a lot of horror stories

I had the mirena for 5 yrs and zero problems. The only mention on recalls regarding mirena were on attorney commercials. I didnt find anything credible showing they were recalled. Any kind of birth control has risks. I never had issues w mirena but with the pill i had endless problems. Not everyone will respond the same way to a specific birth control.

I am on my second iud, and it has worked out perfect for me. I had my first one put n 8 yrs ago. being on birth control for 8yrs after a bad pregnancy, Surgery or an iud was my only 2 choices, at the age of 34. Any birth control has side effects. Both doctors put me on a antibotic a few days b4 the implant. My daughter had nothing but infections when she had hers put in. Her doctor never did antibotics, needless to say she had it taken out. Im beside my self  bc my daughter was told by a specialist...not to have any baby for at least 5yrs. She delivered her first an only baby at 7 months, an we fought to keep baby in from 20 wks til she delivered. i wish her doctor would of listened to her an jus give a antibotic, at least tried it.
