I was only 17 when I had the IUD put in. And lets just say my experience with it hasn't been the greatest one. After I got it put in. I became very ill. Sick to the point that I couldn't get out of bed. I was in alot of pain and was in tears. Well I thought it was just my body getting used to it. The pain would come and go so I just dealt with it. I also have a very high tolerance of pain. Well the longer it's been in the more side affects have shown themselves. My migraines have increased and intensified. My arms and legs go numb, my cramps are killing me and I become so depressed I contemplate suicide. I've become cold against my boyfriend to the point where I don't feel like I love him. I didn't know if it was that I didn't love him anymore or the IUD. Basically every side affect I read about I had. But I didn't know if the Depression would focus on the person I care about most and make me cold. I needed answers and I hope takin this out will give them to me. I'm 18 now. This shouldn't of even been an option to me.
