Mirena has its pros and cons for me. I liked it that I did not have to worry about getting pregnant. I also like it that I do not have to spend money on all the tampons because I havenít had a period since I got it inserted, I also like it because I smoke and my hormone levels go down because of this. The bad parts are that it is very painful when it gets inserted. It is on of the most painful things I have ever gone through. The other big problem is that I ended up spending as much as I would on tampons and pills because of the skincare products that I had to buy. I am getting it removed because of the acne. I would not recommend it for other women.
