*Never had the Mirena*
Thinking about getting it.
Here is what I HAVE had with the Paraguard
Anyone else switch from the copper to the Mirena? Better or Worse? Recommend?
I got the copper IUD in Feb 08. I hate it!! My periods are out of control I have to use the super plus tampons and pads b/c after about an hour and a half I will start bleeding on myself if I am not able to go to the bathroom and change it. I have never had to use anything over a regular tampon until now. I have had nothing, but sever problems with cyst on my ovaries and the cramping that brings me to my knees. I have been trying to give my body enough time to adjust to the paraguard but I am calling it quits next month. I can not take it anymore. In July I have broke out in these weird bumps all over my chest and back. I have NEVER had any problems with acne maybe a zit here and there. My periods last around 7 to 8 days. It lasted 4 before the IUD. I feel like I am always on edge which I believe that is b/c I am always in pain. It starts around a week before my period I will have SEVER pain in my ovaries it feels like someone is trying to pull them out. Not only am I bleeding more during my period I am sooo sore down there it feels swollen and sometimes even just walking brings pain. Most of the pain will last a week after my period stops. I have a few days a month where I feel ok. I have had it 7 months and it is not getting any better. I found this b/c I was looking to see if anyone has gone from the copper to the mirena and if it was better. I have sever mood swings, but I believe that’s how I deal with the pain a lot of the times. Not 100% sure though. If you like almost bleeding to death then I would recommend the copper IUD. I know the bleeding is heavier b/c there are times it seriously runs out of me like I was using the bathroom (not joking). I stay weak and always have headaches. Asking for this was the worst thing I could of done.
