I SO agree with the "we know our bodies", I had mine removed Wednesday and while I still feel bad, I'm so looking forward to being normal again!! Having it removed was nowhere near as bad as having it put in (thank goodness)! I do have to say at lunch today I felt so bad I actually told a friend to hold on while I push out this baby! Thats how bad I feel today (cramps)and thats just what it felt like! Pressure and all!! Just waiting for them to go away. But in telling my doctor all of my issues she actually said "well you know even if we take this out chances are it's not going to change your symptoms". I said "well I'm willing to take that chance, I'm 32 and that's too young to be going through menopause"! She didn't comment on the whole menopause thing. I'm just glad to be rid of it!! I hope there's no long term damage done. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone!
