ok so i chose to go with mirena for bc. my dr wanted to wait til i got my period to insert but im not getting a full real period due to pumping. she said she may try to insert without a period but may be painful and will have more of a chance of perforating my uterus. she said lets see at 10 weeks pp how we're doing...well i'm 10 weeks now and have a very very light period, i will call monday a.m. to see what they wanna do...do you use mirena? did you have it inserted without having a full blown period? do you like it? pros and cons? i read some real horror stories online and just wanna make sure im making the right choice...i know we're all different but would like your opinions.

I had mirena put in about 4 months pp...I've not had a period since delivering my son in June due to EP'ing. My dr. was not concerned. There was no pain with the insertion and no pain since. The biggest concern my dr. had when inserting it was to ensure I wasn't pregnant already since it can cause a miscarriage. He didn't seem at all concerned that I had not had a period.
