My OBGYN had also assured me that none of my symptoms are from the Mirena. I also wonder why there is such reluctance to admit that the Mirena could be the problem. It's not like I'm asking if the Mirena is bad across the board, I'm just trying to find out if it's bad for ME! God bless you for getting on here and rallying for your wife. I think that the only way to "prove" side effects is for all of the women who have trouble to report it to their doctors and to make a call to the manufacturer and possible lodge a complaint with the FDA. If I had known the broad spectrum of side effects and their severity I would never have gotten the IUD placed. Mine is coming out next week so here's to the return of normalcy. Good luck to you and your wife!
