Re: Mirena IUD Side Effects (REMOVAL EFFECTS???)

With the Mirena you should really wait 1 year before deciding to have it removed; your body takes about a year to adjust completely to it... The cramping goes away, your periods even out and become predictable within 6 months. The sex drive thing also mellows out. Mirena isn't any different then the pill, since it uses the same hormone. Your body 'thinks' that it is pregnant so it doesn't produce an egg. You need to switch to water, and eat several small HEALTHY meals a day with complete organic foods to experiance no weight gain. Keep up a 2,000 cal diet and excersise (30min walk once a day, pilates/yoga tape 2-3x/wk) eating plenty of fruits and vegetables. When I started to do that the weight gain mellowed, and may have dropped. Pants started to fit a little better (when they weren't ripping... :( )

I had mine in for a year and that 'fullness' did kind of go away, but I did gain rapid weight gain during that year and when from 190lbs to 224lbs. My fiance wants kids, and while I don't directly "want" them, I know I'll never say "ok, lets try". I had mine removed because I'm tired of the hormones controling my thoughts and feelings, and I kind of do want the option to have an "accident".

But I had it removed on the 19th; and today is the 29th... I'm going through some SEVERE depression. I feel worthless, hollow and empty inside. Lifeless. Incapable of love. It sucks. I'm crying for no reason at all... has anybody else gone through this? Is is possible that my body is reacting to no longer having the birth control hormone after being on it for 4 years? (I'd gotten preg. twice on the pill; abortions; switched to Merina...) Its CRAZY. Horrible mood swings; I don't know what to do!
