first of all, thank you, EVERY ONE OF YOU, who took the time to post here. As many people here I thought the problem was with me. I enjoy intimacy with my husband A LOT. I have many girlfriends who think that sex is "overrated" who never have orgasms. It's just not the case for me. I love sex, love the toe curling, waves through my body orgasms. Also, it usually doesn't take much, just the usual foreplay with my husband does the job. I am 33, have been married 10+ years and I have 3 kids. Well... my doctor recommended Mirena IUD and I thought - why not. No periods would be nice. This was before my husband and I went on a nice long tropical vacation (5 start hotel, ocean front suite, left the kids at home with my mom). Well... who knew that the ocean and all the luxuries of the world would NOT help me have a single orgasm!!!! It was like my body was all of a sudden was not capable of having orgasms . Not for the lack of trying. But 9 days of trying and the entire month after - and nothing!!!!! I kept thinking - what the heck is wrong with me? Was this a gift that I simply lost because I got older? Somewhere in the back of my mind I kept thinking - could this be the Mirena IUD? Is that physically possible to just turn my sex drive off like a light switch immediately after it went in? My husband, who has NEVER SEEN ME NOT ENJOY SEX IN THE 10 YEARS WE'VE BEEN MARRIED finally suggested that I looked it up online. So happy I saw this thread!!!! I'm getting this peace of crap out of me first thing in the morning. My suggestion to the rest of you is - if you are the type of woman who simply does not enjoy sex and never has orgasms - you might as well use an IUD. However, if you enjoy intimacy and that part of your relationship is important to you - trust me, periods is a small price to pay! DO NOT GET AN IUD!!!! (the only one I've used is Mirena, but I AM NOT EXPERIMENTING with ANY IUD EVER AGAIN!). I never post or comment on posts like these, but since reading all these comments has helped me so much, I thought I owed it to the rest of the people in the same situation to leave a comment and share my experience with Mirena.
