I do not have an IUD at this time. However, If we have another baby, I was thinking about getting this put in at my PP checkup. I almost got a Mirena after I had my son, but at the last minute, opted for the mini pill instead, which I only lasted for about 10 months on after stopping it due to major mood swings and breakthrough bleeding.
I have heard alot of people that really love their IUD's and I like the fact that I dont have to worry about taking a pill or what not. The only thing I dont like about it, is that its really like a foreign object to your body and sometimes because of that it can cause infections. I am really prone to yeast infections in general. I get them at least 3-5 times a year. And, they seem to have gotten more frequent since having my son. I have had yeast infections before I had my son, but rarely, like once a year or once every few years But, since I had him, I have seem to be more prone to them in general. Which is a bummer. I hear that IUD's can make people more likely to get yeast infections in general, so Im sort of worried about that. I truly do not want to have to get them anymore frequently then I already am.
What has been your experience? I have very regular periods otherwise and ovulate each cycle. [I know that cause I chart].
Any feedback is appreciated! Thanks!
