I am Getting the Mirena Removed Friday after 6 months. I hope my symptoms go away, as the nurse at my doctors office laughed at me and said "it's not from the Mirena."
I had the Mirena IUD put in after my 2nd child, Alec now 7 months. My 2 boys are 14 months and 10 days apart and I've got my hands full, so since my Dr said I was "good" for the Mirena I agreed so avoid a tubal ligation (tubes tied). Anyway, When I first had the Mirena put in I felt like I was on another planet, probably within 1-2 hours of placement.
In February I had bouts of moodiness, depression, didn't want anyone around, etc. I blamed it on Post Partum Anxiety. My family Dr. prescribed an anxiety pill, which I took 3 x and that was it. The side effects lasted for 2 days after I woke up.
Next, I feel that I can throw up all the time, have headaches all the time, my back and body ache...I called the nurse, my GYN-Dr is out, and she laughed at me and said she has never heard of these effects from the MIRENA and thinks I have arthritus. I freaked on her basically and she said well come and and have it removed and see if your symptoms go away.
Well Friday I am going and I hope all subsides. I don't think anyone should feel like I do day-in and day-out when tyring to raise 2 children.
Please help me and let me know if you have had these symptoms.
Thanks a lot. Good Luck to all of you that have or are going to try the MIRENA.
I will be trying a cleansing kit after the removal on Friday, so if anyone has a good kit they have tried let me know. :)
