I had the merina for 3 years before we planned Jenna and I was pregnant 3 months after removal.  I had no problems with it but know a lot of women who have. Hubby got snipped so I didn't have to use hormones anymore. I did gain some weight with it but never had a period after the 1st 6 months

well i have had it for almost a month now. i was suppose to start on the 30th but still nothing i am hopeing it is just the iud lol. i do have really bad cramps since i got it but nothing more then that. but my dr did tell me im suppose to reach up there to feel the string at least once a month and i dont feel nothing. i go back to the dr on wednesday to make sure it is still in place andmy af is late because of that lol
