I just stumbled upon this website forum last night and I want to share my experience with Mirena IUD. I thought it was all my imagination but within the first week of having it inserted. I was bleeding irregularly, cramping, lower back pain, discharge with a strange odor, mood swings, felt very hungry all the time (my appetite was uncontrollable), I was irritable and became very depressed. I wanted it out but the doctors told me to give it six months to "adjust". Well I gave it a year and half and I was miserable! Finally made an appt. and demanded it be removed (at a different gyno. than where it was inserted). They removed it and then for the first time in my life my paps are coming back "abnormal". So I went in for a coposcopy, and they had to take a small biopsy from my cervix. The results were sent to pathology and came back as non cancerous but they wanted to see me again for a follow-up in 3 months. I went in for my followup, had another pap. Now, in just 3 months my results went from "minorly abnormal" cells to severly abnormal and they are thinking I have displaysia. I'm blown away but it's all starting to make sense with the above symptoms I've experienced since having the IUD put in! I was completely normal until I had the Mirena IUD inserted......I'm angry and think this is the cause of all my problems. I go in March 5th for further discussion on my options. I will keep this post updated on my results and would love to hear from others who may be experiencing the same thing. This is scary stuff...I KNEW that IUD was BAD from the first week they put it in. It's TOXIC....stay away from it. It has caused me so much pain and suffering. Luckily, I'm done child bearing. I have a beautiful 2 yr.old girl and sweet handsome 4 yr. old boy. I'm seriously going to discuss a partial hysterectomy as treatment. I know extreme and not recommended for woman wanting to have more children but since I'm done w/all that I don't want to worry about cervical cancer the rest of my life!
