I need some info from those who've used this form of BC before. My son is 7 weeks old and I'm done having kids. However, I'm also breastfeeding and I'm not willing to stop yet just to have a hysterectomy. I know for sure I will end up getting one. I suffer from endo and after 3 bio kids and one step I don't need any more children. So a hysterectomy is my best option to stop the reoccurring surgeries to remove scar tissue from the endo. My ob said the mirena could help with the endo in theory. I've heard conflicting reviews in the past but would like to here more current experiences. Thanks.

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

I've had Mirena in for about 1.5 years. Other than some weight gain and some spotting issues, it has been pretty pain-free and I have forgotten about it for long periods of time until my husband brings it up. Forgive me since I do not know much about endo, but I do know that Mirena thins up the wall of your uterus, so that might help ease your pain somewhat. I hope it helps ease your symptoms!

I don't know much about Endo. My sister and one of my best friends have it and also a cousin and I know it is different for all 3 of them. But I did have the Mirena for 3.5 years and I didn't have any problems with it really. It didn't hurt getting in, my periods basically disapeared after a while and I didn't have any of the pain or problems that I hear some people have. I am very sensitive to the hormones though. At times I was about as emotional as I was at 9 months pregnant.

Would I get it again? I'm not sure. It's very costly to get placed and even removed if your insurance does not cover it like mine doesnt. And the hormones were a deal breaker for me. I have heard of an Iud that is hormone free though. I guess I would have to take a look.

Good luck with your decision.
