I have had mirena for 2.5y and no major symptoms.
Instead of period I get very slight spotting for about 3 days each month and minimal cramping, much less painful than period pains I used to get.
The only thing I am dreading is getting it removed and reinserted. I haven't been checking the strings so have no idea where they are...Also every now and then I have this fear/paranoia that I could he pregnant and not know!

I didn't gain weight but I couldn't lose any either! Was seeing dietician, on strict diet and exercise programs and could not budge it. Had it out and lost 16kgs.
Period wise it was awesome. Minimal if any bleeding or cramps. Mentally I was a basket case.

I had the Mirena for 2.5 (I think) years and lost over 40kgs while I was taking it (by actively trying to lose weight). I never put weight on as a side effect. I'd get mini cramps sometimes around when it would be that time of the month but considering I was almost bed-ridden in pain before I had it (endometriosis and adenomyosis) it was nothing, I'd say it was a slight twinge. A couple of times I had some slight spotting and had to wear a liner for a day but that was really it.
I had the Mirena taken out in June last year and was pregnant in July...

It was a last attempt at easily reversible contraception for us but it made me a hormonal nightmare, hubby asked me to have it removed so I did- I was really really awful.
He ended up having the snip, we figured that the benefit of that far outweighed the issues we had had with contraceptives. He knew that regardless of anything he would never want more children and I couldn't be sure (at that point in time) we also decided that if we changed our minds we would use IUI despite the risks that come with that and the costs.
