I had mirena for a little over two years. Last week I had it removed because of nasty headache spells I have been having for the past two years. It didnt dawn on me until my husband and co-workers became increasingly concerned with my frequent hospital visits. I have had headache every day for the past two years, and finally I had had enough. I have been through countless CT scans, and MRI's. I have been to the dentist, shrink, eye doctor, and head specialists. I have had two, yes two, spinal taps because of the headaches. Last week I finally had enough, I went to the Ob and he took it out in less than 5 minutes. I have had no headaches since friday, and it was removed on tuesday. I hope that this solves the headaches problem, otherwise we are back to square one.
