As a Mirena victim, I don't think of the tales on here as "sob stories".
When I still had the Mirena inside me and no idea what was causing all my illnesses, I was very grateful to read graphic accounts from other women worldwide outlining their experiences.
My doctor never informed me about the chemicals inside the Mirena or about any potential side effects. It was only though reading sites like this that I became aware.
For that I will be eternally grateful and hope that other women who are also suffering will be able to read similar accounts and gain the strength to have the Mirena removed.
