i too would get nausiated, couldn't keep anything out of my mouth, retained water like crazy, plus much more. i seriously took a few pregnancy tests while i had it in for the 2 yrs. it was awful, i hope you get to have it taken out soon. things will get better, it'll just take time. i'm pretty much back to normal and it's been 7 months since i had it taken out. the doctors or whoever really needs to educate themselves and the patients about the possible side effects before they let anyone else get it. people need to know about all the problems that people are having from it before they decide whether or not to get it. at least they'll know.
