i got my mirena inserted while i was breastfeeding when my baby was 8 wks old. i had to stop 6wks later. for some reason my milk supply decreased. even though i was bfing her solely, my supply started to not be able to fill her up anymore and so i was forced to supplement, until eventually she was on formula all the time. with our oldest i had to stop bfing because i went back to work when she was 6wks old and couldnt keep it up bc of the job stress. with the baby, i didnt work, i stayed home and was relaxed and carefree. the only thing that would explain why i all of a sudden couldnt fill her anymore was the mirena. i thought i could live with that, since at that point in time, that was the only problem iwas having with it. i only had my mirena for three months before it came out. i wish i could take those three months of my life back, i would have preferred no bc to that. i started having really bad headaches everyday, no energy, no sex drive, depressed, i couldnt take care of my kids anymore i was so tired. then, two weeks before it came out i started having pelvic pain on my right side. and ive had it since. this started in february. i decided to go with no birth control instead of hormones. well, i got pregnant four weeks after it came out. i miscarried four weeks after that. i know that the hormones left over from mirena were to blame. my dr put me on bc (hormonal) for three months to see if it would help me get regular again and see if this pain will go away. if it does not, then i will have to have a laporoscopy done to see what is wrong, and depending on what is found, i will face a possible hystorictomy. im only 25! all of this because of a decision to get the mirena bc my husband did not want any more children. which, we dont have to worry about anymore, seeing as he had a vasectomy three months ago. he was already planning it, but we had to wait for insurance to cover it before he could get it done, is why i went ahead with the mirena. now i am having other issues that im wondering had something to do with the damage that was done by the mirena. now i can get up, take about five steps, and pass out. not long, but long enough to hit the floor. thank god it hasnt happened while i have been holding one of the girls. i wont be able to get it checked out until at least next month, when hopefully our new insurance starts.
