Do you use Mirena? If so, what do you think of it?
I just got home from the gynecologist, and my doctor decided that I am a perfect candidate for having Mirena implanted in my uterus. I had read a lot about Mirena before the visit, and after talking to my doctor, it seems absolutely perfect for me. My doctor uses it herself and loves it. I am quite excited about this! She even wrote me prescriptions for Valium and Percocet to take before the procedure, so I will not feel uncomfortable while it’s happening.
Follow-up question: Does anyone use NuvaRing? I have one in now. I had previously used Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo (for 5 years), but I ran out of pills and was really bad about taking them regularly, so my gynecologist put a NuvaRing in me at the visit today to serve as birth control until I go back to get Mirena.
