The best thing I ever did. I am on my second Mirena. ( 5 years for the first, now on my 3rd year with this one). I have not had a period through entire time using the Mirena and it is wonderful!!!! No side effects what so ever. I am 52 and hope then once I need to replace this one I will be in menopause.
