I'm sitting here, in my grandmother's bed (bc it's super soft and I love sleeping here when she's out of town), and I can't sleep..  I hate when this happens, bc it's usually due to a headache or pain of some sort..

** Guys, this is when you should prolly go back to your other websites.. lol **

Now that's out of the way.. 

Tonight, it's a little of everything.. thanks to TOM..  Yay me *insert sarcasm*

What makes it worse is that I've recently had an IUD implanted.. Yep, almost a month ago, I got Mirena put in and I've been cramping ever since.. ugh!  I knew it would possibly be a complication, but I thought it would be worth it in the end, bc it would regulate everything.. and I do have to admit that it has lessened my "flow" so I can tell..  

The one thing that scares me is that it can come out.. and I've heard several people say that it has happened to them..  I've got my follow up appointment to make sure it's where it's supposed to be on Monday, so hopefully my OB/GYN will be able to put my mind at ease..

Anyone else have Mirena?  or another kind of IUD?


  1. I recently got Mirena and so far so good. I had cramping only the first 2 days after it was placed. So far I randomly get spotting for a few hours and then it disappears. I go in Next month to get it checked.

    I must admit I was super scared to get it but I have two friends who both have Mirena.

    One who had it previously for 2 yrs and had it removed bc it caused her to facial hair. Not a a lot but more than she liked. That was her only issue. The 2nd friend has had it for almost 7 months and her only complaint has been spotting. It's more annoying than anything she said.

    They both convinced me to try it.


  2. I have had mine for 3 years (it's good for 5) and I had minimal spotting when inserted and have not had a period in ALL THAT TIME! I have had two occurances of spotting but they both only happened for like 1/2 a day and did not have any associated cramps.

    I have a family history of heavy bleeding problems and this has been a Godsend to me.

    Honestly, I was fearful of it falling out but have not had any issues. Hope this helps

  3. I spotted for 5 weeks with my Mirena for 5 weeks then it finally stopped! Hang in there.
