I have been reading your posts and my heart goes out to you ladies, stay strong!
I have heard so many things about this iud method of birth control. It always seemed like a strange idea, but so many women have this and a lot of women find no problems so.......
well it started out I was against it, but out of worry of another pregnancy I quickly decided (i was really scared to have another baby because of complications during and after delivery which happened with all the children and I felt never again can my body deal with another pregnancy)So i opted for a copperT iud. I never heard anything about this one, its always people talking about the Mirena. I thought no hormones it will be fine. Well I was wrong!
After four days- just 4 days it was floating outside of the womb and I had to be rushed into the O.R. It was a long painful 4 days. And it caused me so much anguish and pain.
I then started to search the internet about this thing. I found a video from youtube that shows the uterus with a copperT. If you look at it you will see an awful looking uterine environment full of white blood cells. A normal uterus is supposed to be rich in blood vessels and pink/red. This video shows a whitish ill womb.
They LIE on the information they print out stating scientists arent exactly sure how IUD's work... they know very well what happens but the truth wont sell these things, if women really knew how a big infection really starts happening, women would stay away. It took me a while to get over it. I am wondering if there is any legal action women can take from this? How come some women find no problem and others are so affected? Its really an unnatural form of birth control. Anyways thanks for reading.
oh and here is the video i found.
Thank you Claudia for the warm welcome. This forum is very special.
The sad thing is, I think it was my Dr.'s fault, but she acted quickly to help me. This was the first time anything like that happened in her practice of over 20+ years.
