Hi I just got my Mirena Inserted about 3 weeks ago (May 14 2007) Since then I started bleeding and I have been bleeding for the past 3 weeks. I hate it, Ive felt very different since getting it put in. I cant concentrate, mood swing, NO sex drive at All.. headaches. Also my daughter will be 5 months old on Saturday And since having this put in my milk as decreased ALOT. I have spoke to my OBGYN and he claims that the bleeding is Normal and that it does NOT decrease milk supply.That if my daughter isnt getting enough that I am not making enough and that maybe I should just put her on the bottle. I havent had any problems nursing since mirena was put even. I breastfed my youngest son for 16months. I even spoke to wic and they said that Yes it does decrease milk supply and bleeding for 3 weeks is NOT normal and to have it removed. My doctor will NOT remove it though, and I even called the Er and they wont do it either. I dont know what to do I am at loss here. I even read about some of you ladies removing it yourself and I am so tempted to do it. I even tried and felt the string but I could not grab them good enough (I did this sitting on the toliet) I dont know what else to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
