my nurse told me it works for some people. Yes you do stop bleeding 3 months.I had not had my period for 2 years on this iud. Watch your body for signs. I ignored signs like feeling like i had to pee all the time, i ignored them untill i had larger problems it took me over 2 years, but i never had trouble sleeping and have not slept well since it was put in, watch for signs, because the big signs arent fun, and i was mis diagnosed with uti trouble, I guess pain can feel like its in your bladder but its reaLLY IN YOUR PELVIS. I hope i have not been mis diagnosed again, time will tell i had my iud taken out today, i wanted it to work, no periods or worry about pills, but my doctor said it had to go. I have been on Antibiotics for 2 months now, i dont have a std, one partner. I had iud taken out today my pain went away right away now im waiting for it to come back because i have been living with it for so long, but I hope the iud works for some. I read online that iud products in the past are taken off the market like lippies loop, because of problems then the drug companys came out with these "new products" they make a ton of money but if they work for some people its very worth the money, my pain has been real, but time will tell if it was the iud, it started a little when it was placed. They really dont know how iuds work, except the merina has a tiny amount of progestrine, they think they may work by causing a slight infection making the uterus a hostile place, in egypt the people placed rocks in camels uterus so they would not be with child during long trips in ancent times. I have read all this online so its any ones guess, but i really would like to belive it will work, it is such a neat thing if it would, i use to hear people talk about this and i would think that only happens to like 2 people in the world, but hello it really happened to me and it has been very hard to deal with, watch your body and dont let little things go, good luck yes you stop bleeding.
