Mirena Complications, Side Effects, HELP!!! Re: Seriously confused Depression was serious!

teralynn, i read your message after finding this website. i had a marina iud placed over one year ago. i had bleeding for the first three months with terrible cramping. the bleeding stopped but my monthly periods went from 5-6 days per month to 10-14 days per month with spotting off and on in between periods. i have constant vaginal irritation, pain after intercourse at times, chronic migraines and have started topamax and imitrex for these and i have gained over twenty pounds. i am also being treated for Depression taking cymbalta. i have been seeing my family md and have repeatedly asked if these could be related to the iud and they keep telling me no. i am scheduled for my annual ob/gyn visit this week on wednesday 1/11 and after reading this website i am convinced i want this thing out. i am so relieved to know that i am not crazy and that the iud can actually have side effects. when i had it placed my ob/gyn told me there were minimal to no side effects ( with absence of periods and headaches being the only ones). does anyone have any other suggestions of different types of birth control that i can use? i am not ready to have tubal ligation. i have three children but i have a successful career and i have thought about having another child in the future so i do not want to have my tubes tied yet. i have always been a small healthy person and this past fourteen months has been very hard because of the Depression and weight gain regardless of dieting and exercise. my doctor repeatedly tells me that my body is changing with age and i just need to accept it. i am so glad that i actually looked on the internet and found this website. the mirena website has so little biased information. teralyn, i hope that things get better for you! good luck to all! any suggestions from anyone let me know! thanks, rachel
