It's working!

While I still have zits like a 13 year old, I have to say that as time goes by I am loving my Mirena more and more! AF came this month and lasted 2 days. TWO days! Not only has it been the shortest AF in recorded Alex history, but it was barely heavy enough to warrant much more than liners! Perhaps I will get to the point where I no longer have them at all! I didn't believe this when my doc said it happens frequently but I am starting to hope now!

Pain wise I am doing great! I still get the occasional cramp and/or pain in the right side but nothing a little bit of Tylenol/Motrin can't fix. I am about 7 months out and I have to say I am really happy with our decision to try the Mirena for a while until we can start IVF. I know it doesn't work for everyone, but so far for me it's been SO worth it! (Yes, even the zits!)

i always wanted one for myself in the past but i never even bothered asking for it because i have had an ectopic pregnancy so i didn't think they'd give it to me. my very best friend emily has one and she LOVES it.
