need moral support
I am grateful for this forum because I have had so many of the same symptoms everyone is describing here and I didn't figure it out until yesterday. I went into the Planned Parenthood where I had it inserted and insisted on having it out today. I have had so much trouble with the anxiety, depression, shortness of breath, and many other things, yes weight gain, too.
I am crying right now because of the way they treated me over it at the clinic, insisting that the IUD wouldn't be causing my problems. They all spoke to me like they were rolling their eyes. And I guess I am especially sensitive since I am hormonally wacky from the Mirena.
I am also very sad about not having an option that works for me so far, even having had problems with the copper IUD. I like being able to have sex with my lover without condoms, and now we have to go back to them. I would really like to hear from others who have tried the natural birth control methods.
I am going going for acupuncture this afternoon to help with getting myself through the shift to natural body function.
