I had the Mirena for 7 months and it made me psychcotic. I had thoughts of hurting m,y kids and that they'd be better off if I weren't their mama. It was awful. I had never had any depression before either.
I have the Paragard , well have had it for 3 months, and my period cramps are AWFUL. I hate it but I really don't think I have another option for BC. I can't have failure. I just can't. I have been told the cramping gets better, so I guess I am holding out until it does. If it doesn't then I'll cross that bridge when I get there.
I personlly wouldn't opt for Mirena, I have never beenin that place before and after being that low I don't want to go back. Had i not did research, even my OB thought I was crazy that it was the Mirena, I might be dead or even worse, in jail for hurting one of my kids. IT was really THAT bad, for me.
