I had mine removed because of chest pains. I knew I wasn't just falling apart all of a sudden. I got the chest pains like 2 weeks after I had it put in. 3 months later the chest pains starting coming worst so I went see my doctor. He told me that the hormone thats in it can cause that but the hormones are not surposed to leave the uterus. He suggested that I leave it in and get my chest checked out. I told him I still wanted to have it removed so he removed it. I felt very bad the day after I took it out. I slept the whole day, I felt like someone drained all my energy out. I had bad stomach pains so I decided to go see my regular dr.I had an EKG done and my heart was fine. I had X-Rays done and my chest was fine. It's is now 3 weeks since I got it removed I have no more chest pains. If I were you I would have it removed if you didn't already.
