I had my IUD for 2 years now. Over the 2 years had severe mood swings, like really bad towards family and friends. Emotional up and downs, facial hair, and gained 20 pounds, mostly in stomach, now look pregnant all the time. Have absolutely ZERO sex drive, irregular spotting with no warning! dry skin, severe night sweats, heart palpatations, depression, acne breakouts, hair falling out, anxiety etc. and lately my left hip, and low back and side like where ovary is, is killing me! It never occurred to me it could be the IUD until recent, I always passed it off as getting older or something, or pre-menopause symptoms. So did some researcsh and found this site, so made me think--WOW maybe it is this thing. Decided I need to get this thing out, Called my OB/GYN and told her all my symptoms and she said sounds like Thyroid related and it the years she has been putting in IUD's she has never gotten anyone coming back with any complaints like this. So went for blood work this past weekend all came back normal. Now since I currently don't have any health insurance I have to save up the money to have this evil thing taken out. Am I going crazy? or can this little thing really cause all these problems?
