I am SO sorry to hear that it has come to this with your wife.
Me being Female......
I'm 38, have 3 kids, 3 step kids; been married to my 2nd husband now for 9 months.
I had the Mireana for 3.5 years. I didn't recognize the syptoms that I was having. But yes, it caused me to be an emotional mess. I could cry at the drop of the hat. I was Moody all the time...to the point of Depression
(border line). Or I could got into fits of rage and Irratible!!
Littleest things could set me off.
The 1st year or so all seemed Fine/Great with the IUD. Then it went down hill. My hip joints would ache and hurt; and then to have sex would just make it worse. I was in pain; then to be in pain ... I didn't want to have sex. I totally lost all my Drive to want to have sex. It took alot to get me in the mood ...then I still only 1/2 way wanted to.
I felt bad about it and for my new husband ... but I just couldn't get myself together.
Finally after having a couple of abnormal pap smears and finding some of this info online I told my OBgyn that I wanted it removed. She had no problem in doing so. I don't want anymore kids....but I'm lucky as my husband had a vascetomy years ago; and he went the other day to verify it wall still all good and Blank!! So I am lucky to not have to try to find something else that i have to Put medicine into my system.
Now.... I've had mine removed for 43 days now... and YES THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE IN MY MOOD!!!!!
I am not as emotional ... i still get irritated but it has calmed down quite a bit!! I've not cryed since removal!! --before I was ready to cry everyday.
Sex has been better. I don't hurt ... and I've actually wanted it a couple of times. I've heard that my libido should come back with each Cycle that your body readjusts too.
I hope this helps you!!! and I wish the best for her. She may not realize how bad it is! I didn't. But I do now.
keep in mind you are having a hard time dealing with HER emotions....think how she may feel when she can't control them.... and truly doesn't know what to pin point it to.
... cause I thought it was havning teenagers, getting older, having a new blended family, etc.
