I just had surgery to get my Mirena out. I went to the doctor because of the pain that I was having on my right side and because of other issues as well. After two failed procedures in the office to remove it my doctor scheduled surgery. Come to find out it was embedded in my uterus on my right side. Get it out!! I had mine for two years and they last year was terrible. I feel wonderful now after only two weeks. My life and marriage are back to normal again, it is great.
