Did anyone have Mirena and have it removed?

    I had one and had it removed after 5 years. I loved it but H had a vasectomy ( it was a third of the price!). Anyway – my gyn said I should get my period back anytime from now to 3 months. Just wondering when you started back with your period.

    No experience but I hope yours comes back OK with no issues!

    well that was quick – I got it today. I have not been surprised by a period since before my kids were born. I couldn’t figure out what happened – it was like I was 13 again ;) Blah – I did not miss this
    Gaamy – he had no issues with his vasectomy. He had a weekend of “taking it easy” where I made and served him meals and he played video games…. I did not feel bad for him

    Wow that does sound quick! I don’t know anything about the Mirena. Do you not have a period at all when on it? Or it’s just scheduled like normal BC?

    yellowwatts- I did not have a period at all when I was on it – I spotted lightly maybe 3 times in the 5 1/2 years I had it in. It was fabulous!

    Wow that’s pretty cool! I didn’t know there were any BC’s that were like that. I’ve heard of the ones where you only have a period 4 times a year though. The one I’m on gives me very light and short (and usually painless) periods so I can’t complain. ;)

    i would LOVe to get mirena but i cant take hormonal BC. i’ve tried different kinds and it all makes me crazy. like slightly less than homocidal crazy.
