In brief: Bleeding better

That is an excellent choice and very effective for birth control.
Often that iud also decreases the amount of bleeding and sometimes even pain with your menstrual cycles. In some women with endometriosis it may be helpful for pain control but that is less studied.

In brief: Tremendous

The progesteron IUD is as effective as getting your tubes tied in preventing pregnancy.
In addition it helps with anemia, prevents fibroids, endometriosis, and uterine cancer. It also reduces a woman's risk for a hysterectomy.
