I'm new here, have an appointment to get Mirena on Thursday morning. I'm glad I found this community; I mentioned something to my mother and she flipped out and tried to scare me with the usual horror stories, and I had almost talked myself out of it. Then I found this place and called to make the appointment.
I'm 30-ish and have a 7 year old, he was a cesarean delivery. Mirena was actually recommended to me by my obgyn because of issues I've been having with heavy bleeding, so I'm really hoping this slows things down. I have read that it can stop up to 90% of the flow, well if I get even half of that it's an improvement. I'll post next week to tell you all how it went :)
