givinup, Hey its meat27 again. I will be glad when you get your IUD out. Dont let the doctor tell you your side effects go away immediately because they dont. I have only had mine out for 4 1/2 months and haven't really seen much improvement. I haven't had a period yet and from the sounds of it, that helps things out. I am giving it at least 3 months before I go back to a doctor. I am so thankful for this website cause without it i would be broke from medical tests and insane because I wouldn't know what was wrong with me. We just need to stick together and help each other get through this.
