Easy to use especially for women that are in perimenopause because it can be part of Menopausal hormone therapy. I have had several through my life and recommend- very effective, easy and periods favorable!

I first got my Mirena IUD when I was 13-14 for hormonal-induced migraines. The insertion was very painful, but the cramping did not last too long after insertion. I had mild spotting for a few months, then my period stopped completely for 5 years. Last year, my period came back and has been irregular since. Overall, my period has been much lighter and my PMS symptoms and menstruation symptoms have been minimal. I also have noticed more stability in my mood and have had decreased migraines since starting my IUD.

The insertion is intense but the place it and forget about it element about IUDs is worth it!
