Hey everyone- I don't think a thread has been started on this yet, but I'm wondering what everyone else is doing. I decided to get the Mirena IUD at my 6 week pp visit. My partner doesn't want any more kids and was contemplating getting "snipped." I decided to just take matters into my own hands and have an IUD put in. Has anyone else had the Mirena? I had just stopped bleeding before my visit and now I'm having what seems like a heavy period. They told me that I'd have spotting for about 6 weeks or so, but I wasn't expecting to wear tampons and pads. I actually bled so much last night that it got all over my bed - that hasn't happened since I was really young. Grrr. I know that everyone's body reacts differently and that there's a huge range of normal, but I just wanted to hear everyone else's experiences (if you have any). I'm also super crampy, but not as crabby as I usually am with a period. My milk production hasn't been affected at all, though. I've read that some women see their supply go down, but mine actually seems to be going up (and I have no idea how since I'm an overproducer anyway).
So, what are y'all planning to do? Have you made a decision or are you just winging it for the time being?
