I have had my IUD in place for excatly five years now. I am set to have it removed soon. I have the worst facial hair that you could imagine. I have gained weight through out my abdominal area. My breasts leaked milk for almost two years after it was put in place. I have thinning hair that is so damaged that I am embarrassed to be seen in public most days. I was wondering if anyone had luck with their symptoms resolving themselves after the IUD was removed. I am afraid that if I pay for hair removal, that the hair will continue to grow. I am so glad that I am not alone. I felt crazy because my doctor told me this was all in my head.
