Re: IUD for year and half and questioning symptoms

I also have had my IUD for about 1 and 1/2 years. I had it inserted in March of '06.I spent the first year completely worry free. I had a few side effects (memory problems, moodiness, weight gain) that at the time i never attributed to my IUD. Then a few months ago i started getting many of the more severe symptoms, like abdominal bloating, muscle pains, tingling or itching in my whole body, extreme mood swings, and lack of sex drive. I thought i was going crazy, i had anxiety attacks, depression, and anger problems. when i saw my dr. and was diagnosed with severe cluster migraines, i asked her if my problems were IUD related, and was assured that couldn't be the cause. A few days ago i found this site and i felt like a weight was lifted from my chest. Now my only problem is how to get rid of this thing, as i don't have any medical insurance. I think that this IUD effects each woman differently. Some have immediate reactions and others don't notice until the hormones build up in our bodies. Either way this is a horrible thing to have to go through alone and i am so happy that we all have a place to communicate our fears and questions. Hope everything works out for you wherther you decide to keep it or not. Good luck.
