My daughter will be 2 in October. Six weeks after she was born and all was ok'd by the doc's I got my Mirena! My husband and I want to stop with one child.
Doc's talked me through the birth control options (vs. having my tubes tied) and this seemd the best fit! I LOVE IT! I don't know it's there.. and I know when the baby turns 5 - I need to renew it. (We may change our minds and have another -and we still have the option - I love my docs).
Best thing... my cycles are soooo light - if at all. Your cycle is a little heavy in the beginning due to the change in your body.
Before you proceed - make sure you get approval from - or make sure your insurance carrier covers the device. There was confusion with my insurance company - so I always recommend that people double-check and make sure.
Defnitely discuss this and all options with your doctor. If you decide this is not for you, they may suggest something that may be a better fit you.
I hope you find this helpful. Best of luck with your decision.
