It depends on if you go with the Mirena or the Paragard IUD. The Mirena you have lighter periods or possibly none at all.
The Paragard you can get heavier ones because its hormone free.

I'm probably gonna do the Mirena IUD if my insurance approves it. MY OB's office is working on the auth then if it comes through I will get it at my 6wk appt on 22nd.
We want to TTC in 2-2 1/2yrs but even thought the Mirena is 5years I want to do it since I started having issues with Nuva Ring about 9mos before I got pregnant and I suck at taking pills. I want to not need to think about BC.

^^ I think now all birth control is covered under insurance at 100% with the obamacare thing?? No? And breast pumps too for that matter!
I believe as soon as your policy renewed/renews after Aug last year it is in effect

Nope. Some insurances still wont cover everything. All depends on the plan benefits.
I know I have benefits its a matter of how the office does it with this specialty pharmacy if my insurance will let it go that way.

I got my IUD during the c-section or I'd have had to wait 4 more weeks from now and start my crappy deductible over again. $1500+ dollars for Mirena alone.

This is my 3rd Mirena and I love them! I had a Paragard and it was good too but the periods were normal. I have heavier crampier periods so I knew this time it would be Mirena again. Hormones are super low with it and even though it's a 5 year max, it can be easily removed earlier and many resume fertility shortly after removal. I have removed all of my own IUDs when I wanted to get pregnant. lol It doesn't hurt at all to remove and it's like mild cramps to put in.

I think I should be a rep for the Mirena...it's the best BC I know of and even had one put in my 17 y/o.

DH will be getting a vasectomy at some point, probably next year. With my second, my period didnt come back until she was 15 mos old. So for now, we wont be using anything because I highly doubt that it will be coming back anytime soon. And if it does and I get prego, well, so be it.

After my others, I had the IUD but I stopped it after I learned it was abortifacent. Not many people know that so if that would be against your beliefs I suggest you might want to look into something else? Just putting that out there...

I will probably get the Mirena again. As much as I like fertility awareness and NFP, I just cant depend on having that kind of consistancy in my schedule anytime soon. And I really cant handle the idea of getting pregnant in the foreseeable future.

I had the mirena last time. My periods were barely existent. Gotta love that. I cant do any more pills, my body doesnt do well with hormones. Im hoping mirena will not make me crazy Fingers crossed lol

Too late Ashleigh...you're crazy j/k of course... I also can't handle the hormones and am always worried about getting cancer from them anyway. Mirena is so low that it doesn't worry me and the other possibilities scare me more...like getting pregnant again or having the awful cramps/periods...ick!

I got a call yesterday from my OB's office that my Mirena came in and my insurance paid 100% So excited for that when I keep getting EOB's in the mail saying I owe stuff for delivery I didnt even know about

Wow, Katie, your insurance is nice! And much smarter than most insurance too...duh a baby will cost them much more. That is awesome I know about the hospital bills too...I have charges from doctors that I never even saw and tests/drugs I don't remember getting, etc. Burns me up pretty good!

But YAY for the IUD! What a relief!

Btw, I had to put my dd on state funded women's healthcare to pay for her IUD...$1500 was not an option for us. And she HAS insurance! These companies need to be forced to pay. Sorry...more rant

Oh I hear you Rebecca. I'm getting EOB's and I'm going who are you and when did you see me or Samantha?
I'm still majorly pissed that 2 weeks ago, I got the EOB from my OB triage visit on Labor Day, I owe the on call Dr almost $200. What the he** for??? She made me wait over 2hrs and I only saw her for not even 5 minutes and that was only for her to tell me you can go home now The nurses are the ones who did everything.

Insurances are just nuts.
I got lucky, the way my OB office does it they order Mirena's from a Specialty Pharmacy so they dont have to shell out the money first. SO mine went through my Pharmacy benefits, thats the only way it paid 100%. IF it didnt go that route I'm not even sure if it was covered.

Sorry, should have clarified - the non hormonal type. I can't do hormones, they make me mean, crazy and completely take away any libido. Good times!
