I had no idea that this was on the insert. I scanned over the "possible side effects" like I would any other medication but that was over 2 yrs ago and my doctor outright disagreed with this theory even though it's right on the "Physician Perscribing Information" sheet. It says in 5% of women using this IUD this is one of the most common side effects. I can't believe he disagreed...Unbelievable! I'm taking this with me when I get the IUD removed next Wednesday. This definitely made my decision to have this toxic IUD removed. Thank you so much for this information! It's one thing to have a theory but it's another when you actually have the facts on paper. I cannot thank you enough; now I know I'm not crazy. I wonder if once it's removed if my pap smear may go back to normal healthy cells on it's own....I'm hoping to avoid another LEEP. Eek!
Every woman should be informed of ALL the side effects before making the decision to have this IUD inserted.
