TMI! Sorry XD After the miscarriage I did not have money to pay for fertility treatments in Japan. I had to pay 70 000 yens to get the Mirena. In Japan birth control is not as current as in France. I wish I could say that my experience with this IUD was good.But I kept it only one year instead of five. I was fed up with the side effects. I am still thinking about getting pregnant again. Having kids in Tokyo cost a lot of money and I would have to work again. I love raising my child full time. i am tired sometimes, sometimes I get crazy, but what a JOY!
