Re: Mirena IUD Side Effects

My message to any woman who reads this: Don't let your doctor tell you that "it's you" and not the Mirena IUD!!!!!!!!!!

I have used the Mirena twice in the last 4 years (btwn the birth of my two children). Both times I haved used the Mirena, I have experienced weight gain, severe PMS and continuous cramping, blotchy skin with unwanted hair, bloated stomach, depression, constant fatigue, loss of sex drive....and the list goes on....

I love my OBGYN and I trust his judgement, but NOT when it comes to the Mirena IUD. I know that the Mirena is responsible for my symptoms because I was perfectly fine when it was removed and experienced the SAME crappy symptoms when I got another one (after my son was born). I have had numerous discussions with my doctor. He wanted me to leave the IUD in and try to wait a little longer to see if the symptoms decreased. They're NOT and he doesn't have to live with me!!!!

I am a well educated woman and I'm a little annoyed with myself for not following my own intuition. I am ashamed to say that I believed my doctor and got another Mirena IUD after the birth of my first child. Now that the same horrible symptoms have returned, I will never doubt myself or my body again!

Please, please take care of yourselves and listen to your body. I am so much happier now and so is my family! After reading all your comments, I am feeling so validated.

Thank you all.
