Ok so my daughter is 18 months old and I've had the mirena since she was 6 weeks old. Ever since i've had it my moods have been hell to the point that my hubby calls it the devil inside me...I have gained weight on top of the 10 lbs of baby weight that I lost before the mirena's placement so I'm tipping the scales at 169-170... I'm 5ft 4in tall and after having the mirena placed my hunger has been bad... I'm more tired and always angry or in tears and I have had the actual mirena flip inside my body and have to have it turned and I've had heavier bleeding and cramps since it's placement has any one else had any simlar experience with it? I'm strongly considering having it removed and just find a another birth control method. advice? thoughts?

"The devil inside".... So funny yet so not since it's true (at least in my case)! Lol I've had it for over 6 months now. The first 2-3 months I bled heavy. Since then I have spotted every day. I feel evil... usually I'm pretty patient and understanding, but since having it I have a short fuse and get so angry about the smallest things. I feel anxious all the time. I feel physically and emotionally like I'm pmsing all the time.

Have you ever taken any other hormonal birth control and had similar reactions? I had issues on the pill too. I am hoping we will be more settled in a year and can start TTC. Sorry I don't have any advice.

Thank for sharing your story...I'm glad I'm not the only one with these issues. I too feel anxious all the time and I get made over stupid little things like mis folded towels or the toilet paper roll it's so annoying I'm considering taking mine out or rather having it taken out. But we are no where near ready to ttc because we don't want any more kids yet... I was on ortho tri cycline lo before the mirena and though I had a weird first 3 months on it after that it was smooth sailing.
