I only had the IUd in for 10 days or so but i have had alot of joint and muscle pain. I havent been to any doctors, I have just been trying to be patient and wait for the side effects to go away. I am concerned in the mean time that permanent damage is being done to my body from extra estrogen in my system. Does anyone know if there is a test that can be done to detect abnormal hormone levels? I have been thinking about calling my doctor to see what I can do to get these levels normal again. I am concerned also because I have Phebitist (bad spelling) which is where your blood clots easy. Estrogen increases the risk of blood clots so having this extra estrogen in my system could be very bad. I am worried by doctor wont think its a big deal, because he thinks the IUD hasn't caused any of these side effects. Any advise?
