So, I'm trying to figure out the post-partum birth control thing. Hormonal methods are out (not safe for breastfeeding except for the mini-pill, which is too schedule-dependent for my liking), and barrier methods are annoying. I've had the Mirena IUD recommended to me, but my gut reaction from reading about it is - not positive. (Visceral squick factor, I guess.)

Any women out there who have or have had an IUD? What do you think of it? Pros/cons, squick or pain factor?
