A former pill and implant user, Jenna started using the Mirena IUD when her doctor suggested it a few years ago. The implant was fine, but now she's really in love.

Jenna experienced spotting for the first 6 months, but that was no big deal. Now she has consistent and really light periods—no more than 2 days of bleeding a month.

Jenna's Mirena was covered by her co-pay. But if she had to pay out-of-pocket, she'd still choose the IUD for its many benefits and so that she wouldn't have to bother paying for another method every...single...month.

It was awesome—only $20 and they covered the rest.

Idiot. Not everyone is on birth control for sex. Do some research. Acne, irregular periods, severe cramping to the point that is alters daily activity just some examples to help you out with your knowledge base which seems to be fairly small.

Exactly. I had irregular periods and started my BC when I was 16. Didn't have sex for several years after. Don't be so narrow-minded.
